To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps the Government is taking to reduce homophobia in sport.
There is no place for homophobia in sport. Sports must come together to tackle homophobia and discrimination of any kind, and ensure that sport is at the forefront of equality.
Sports, from grassroots to elite, should continue to work with organisations such as Stonewall, Pride Sport and Kick It Out to make sport more inclusive. In 2017 government worked in partnership with Kick It Out to issue guidance to stewards on tackling homophobia in sport.
The cross-government sport strategy ‘Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation’ seeks to ensure that access to sport is equal for all and that everyone can enjoy taking part. Sport England, our national sport council, will soon be releasing new LGBT insight, which will explore the barriers and motivations around participation, as well as a LGBT sport infrastructure review report.
