Many LGBTI+ people are disengaged from sport and recreation, as these environments have not kept up with societal change.
A world where all LGBTI+ people are leading active and healthy lifestyles.
To ensure all LGBTI+ people feel safe and confident to lead active and healthy lifestyles, in welcoming and inclusive environments.
Who we are.
Proud 2 Play focuses on increasing LGBTI+ engagement in sport, exercise and active recreation. To do this, we work with all levels of the sporting community, from individual participants and grassroots communities, to state and national sporting organisations. We seek to encourage LGBTI+ people (as well as their allies, friends and families) to participate and engage in sport and exercise by providing structured opportunities and pathways for them to do so. Engagement is not limited to just actively participating in sport; the physical, mental and social benefits of sport should be experienced by active participants, volunteers, coaches and officials.
For anyone who ever thought there was no place for them in sporting environments, we are here to show you there is.
