Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), a time for everyone – whether you’re part of the LGBTQIA+ community or an ally – to stand up against discrimination.
As a society, we have come a long way in promoting acceptance and equality for the LGBTQIA+ community. However, there is still a long way to go, especially in the sporting arena.
According to Out on the Field’s study, 80% of people have witnessed or experienced discrimination against LGBTQIA+ people in sport. This serves an an important reminder that discrimination against LGBTQIA+ individuals is still very prevalent, and that we must work together to eliminate these injustices in our community.
