Pride in Sport

Pride in Sport is Australia’s first and only sporting inclusion program specifically designed to assist sporting organisations at all levels with the inclusion of employees, players, volunteers and spectators with diverse genders and sexualities.

Transgender and Gender Diverse Governance in Sport

In a world first, eight peak sporting bodies have committed to implementing governance that supports a greater level of inclusion for trans and gender diverse people in their sports.

At a launch held on Thursday 1 October 2020 (9:00am AEST) at the Sydney Cricket Ground, leading national sporting organisations (NSOs) came together to unveil their policies and guidelines relating to the participation of trans and gender diverse people.

Pledging Sports

In addition to the above sports, a range of NSOs have also committed to developing trans and gender diverse inclusion frameworks for their sports following the launch.
