Sport
and homosexuality,
towards a sport
more inclusive

Context

Although sport conveys values of fraternity and respect, a recent study showed that around 1 in 2 French people have witnessed homophobic or transphobic behavior in the sporting environment*. As a result, LGBT+ sportspeople are becoming less visible, resorting to strategies of concealment and avoidance, stopping their sporting activities or even fearing sport altogether.

How can we make sports clubs more inclusive, especially when it comes to LGBT+ members? How can we train managers, supervisors and referees to adopt a benevolent attitude, and know how to act and react when faced with homophobia in their club or on the pitch? How can they identify sports facilities that have been trained to welcome homosexuals?

The sessions will be led by Jérôme Mouly and Clark Massad, accompanied by PWC (partner of Paris 2024) represented by Charline Brot and Jose-Carlos Flores, who will support us in the facilitation and assist with the institutional rendering.
