Event description
The conference addresses the role of SOGIESC in sports in light of current restrictions on human rights - in hope of a more inclusive future

About this Event

DISCOVER FOOTBALL (Germany), Bilitis (Bulgaria), LEAP (UK) and Civil Works Association (Ungary) invite you to being part of a CONFERENCE, framed by the ERASMUS+ project Diverse Identities in Sports and Dreilinden foundation.

Sport is about performance only, so sports organisations claim, and sports policies promote ‘sports for all‘. Yet, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) still affect participation. Grassroots and nonprofit LGBTIQ initiatives, activist athletes, sports policy makers and social scientist will discuss

  • effects of sports gender binary and heteronormativity on amateur and professional athletes
  • consequences of homophobia / transphobia / interphobia on the daily lives of amateurs and professionals
  • sports as tool for empowering LBGTIQ people
  • visions and possibilities for an inclusive and non-binary sports world
  • challenges for and the meaning of fair competition
  • lessons to learn from non-binary grass roots sports and LGBTIQ project
