LEAP hosts LGBTIQ+ Sport and Physical Activity Conference 2022

We are still buzzing from our LGBTIQ+ Sport and Physical Activity conference    on Friday 28th October. It was incredibly empowering to be able to gather delegates and contributors from across the sector in person for the first time since 2018. 

The conference saw 110 delegates in attendance at City of Glasgow College with a packed programme covering the upcoming FIFA men’s World Cup in Qatar, the IOC guidelines on fairness, non-discrimination and inclusion, as well as updates on research and good practice from within the sector. And that is just to mention a small selection of what was on offer!

The agenda and brief about workshops is available here.

Ahead of the Friday conference, LEAP Sports partnered with Sport Media LGBT+ and Pride of the Terraces to host a Scottish edition of #AuthenticMe at Strathclyde Union. This was a great way to kick off the conference and we were pleased so many delegates as well as members of the community were able to join us.

A huge thank you to all who attended, presented and contributed to the conference. We are proud to be part of an inspiring community of trailblazers working together to further the experiences of LGBTIQ+ people in sport.
