23rd January 2014

LEAP Sports are very pleased to note Sandra White MSP’s recent parliamentary motion in support of the Pride House initiative and the charity’s work generally:

S4M-08777 Sandra White: A LEAP in the Right Direction for LGBT Participation in Scottish Sport — That the Parliament congratulates LEAP Sports on being awarded £9,960 from the Celebrate programme; understands that this project will create a website, a physical meeting space in the form of a pop up centre and a programme of events and workshops for LGBT people during the Commonwealth Games; notes that many of the events will have a sporting theme in keeping with the 20th Commonwealth Games and that the project will also include live music, exhibitions, films and talks; further notes LEAP’s primary focus on breaking down the social and personal barriers that are considered to discourage LGBT people across the country from participating in Scottish sports; commends LEAP on its continued good work, and wishes it every success with this project.

Supported by: Mark Griffin, Patricia Ferguson, Joan McAlpine, Dennis Robertson, Rob Gibson, Richard Lyle, Patrick Harvie, Drew Smith, Annabelle Ewing, Colin Keir, David Torrance, Roderick Campbell, Mike MacKenzie, Christina McKelvie, Adam Ingram, Kevin Stewart, Mary Fee, Nigel Don
