EVERYONE CAN PLAY- LGBTIQA+ Inclusion in Sport
While many sports clubs wish to be inclusive, they often struggle to know how. To address this, Working It Out have developed and LGBTIQA+ inclusion in sport project Everyone can play.
The project aims to increase physical activity for LGBTIQA+ people through the provision of education, information and resources to anyone connected with the sport and recreation sector.
Through this work, active organisations can develop and embed LGBTIQA+ inclusive policies and practices. This may include appointing an LGBTIQA+ Inclusion Officer or Champion who can both provide accountability for these inclusion initiatives and be a contact point for LGBTIQA+ participants and address any issues which may impact their involvement.
This project was established with a grant from the Healthy Tasmania Fund and continues thanks to funding from the Sport and Recreation Tasmania State Grants, both through the Tasmanian Government.
The Better Lives is a three-year, state-wide project funded by the Tasmanian Community Fund to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes of Tasmanians with innate variations of sex characteristics (intersex). The project will focus on capacity building for professionals within health and education, as well as within the intersex community itself.
