Pride in Sport week
Celebrating Pride in Sport means changing practices and working towards a more inclusive, safe, and healthy sporting environment for people with diverse sexualities and genders.
The Pride in Sport week is one of the many ways MU Sport recognises and celebrates the involvement of LGBTQIA+ identifying persons in sport. The week commenced on 10 May and ran throughout to 20 May with a series of events, activations, games and classes that acknowledge the importance of supporting the LGBTIQA+ community through sport.
