More information about why this event is important:
Research tells us that 80% of LGBTI+ Australians still don’t feel secure in being open about their sexuality within a sporting club context and 75% of LGBTI+ Australians don’t even feel safe enough to attend a sporting game due to the fear of harm or ridicule.
This lack of involvement in sport and physical activity has a huge impact on the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTI+ Australians, who aren’t afforded the same benefits of sport that their heterosexual peers are, causing even more harm to LGBTI+ communities who are already at the highest societal risk of depression, anxiety and suicidal ideations.
Pride Cup has a tested and evaluated model that is proven to substantially shift discriminatory attitudes and language in not just sporting clubs, but throughout communities – reaching rural and regional areas in Australia seldom reached by any other programmes.
The Pride Cup movement is now bigger than ever and has really hit the national stage, with celebration events being staged in association with over 215 clubs from across Australia in 11 sports!
