Government is determined to stamp out homophobia in sport and enable Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people to engage in sport as players, officials and spectators, in line with the government’s strategy for sport and physical activity, Sporting Future. We are working with Sport England, National Governing Bodies and clubs, alongside organisations such as Pride Sports, Stonewall, and Football v Homophobia, to promote a number of anti-homophobia initiatives.
