Diverse Identities in Sport Conference - March 4th, 2016

Diverse Identities in Sport, a LEAP Sports Scotland conference, will take place in Glasgow on March 4th 2016.

The conference which will focus on issues of inclusion of transgender, intersex, non-binary, genderqueer, asexual and other diverse identities related to gender and sexualities in their intersections with other identities within a sport context, and look at practice and strategies for inclusion. We will look at a range of pathways but will focus primarily on access level, grassroots and recreational sport.

The conference is being organised and delivered as a partnership with sportscotland, Scottish Transgender Alliance, Centre for Gender & Feminist Studies at the University of Stirling, Glasgow Human Rights Network at University of Glasgow and Pride Sports UK.

Bringing together a variety of stakeholders, there will be learning routes for sports administrators and governing bodies, those involved in organising recreational sport, academics, activists and sportspeople.
