Out for Sport
28 June 2012 - 9:30am
Murrayfield Stadium Edinburgh,
You are invited to the Equality Network ‘Out for Sport’ conference – a free, one day event that will explore the issues of homophobia and transphobia in Scottish sport.
This ground-breaking conference will see the launch of the first major report into the problem of homophobia and transphobia in Scottish sport and the practical steps we can take to start addressing it.
There will be speakers and interactive workshops from the sports sector, the political sphere, and national equality organisations.
This is your chance to be among the first people to see the findings of the Equality Network’s research and your opportunity to play a real part in tackling the problem.
With contributions from the Scottish Government, the Scottish Parliament, Sportscotland, LEAP Sports, the Scottish Transgender Alliance, Show Racism the Red Card, the Scottish Community Development Centre, our friends at LGBT Youth Scotland, and more.
"Everyone should be able to participate in and enjoy sport - whoever they are and whatever their background. As we head towards the Olympics and Glasgow Commonwealth Games, this is the right time to ensure sport is fully inclusive to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people."
Shona Robison, Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport, Scottish Government
