Building Stronger Communities: Barriers and Facilitators to LGBTQ-Inclusion in Sport

 

Kinnon will be speaking about Homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in recreational, amateur and professional level sports. He will be discussing the impacts of sporting culture on discouraging lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer (LGBTQ) participation in sports and physical activity, leading to under-representation of LGBTQ communities in mainstream athletics and the resulting consequences to physical and mental wellbeing in this population. Kinnon will speak to the importance of inclusion-initiatives and the many barriers and facilitators to LGBTQ participation in sport and athletics.
