Event description

Description

A social debate that explores the polarising views of predominate LGBT Sports Clubs throughout London. The debate is intended to stir discussion about their purpose, value and need within the LGBT community. London and the south now boasts over 40 LGBT Sports Clubs. Many of which have been established for well over 10 years and have retained founding members who remain active club members. Over the past 18 months Out for Sport and the recent London 2018 bid to host the Gay Games has attempted to generate greater connectivity between clubs in order to create a stronger voice that goes beyond the LGBT community.

Panelists Include:

Joanie Evans - Co President of the Federation of Gay Games


Claire Harvey - Paralympian (Sitting Volleyball Captain London 2012) and Assistant Director of Inclusion at the Youth Sport Trust


Tim Sulli - President of Kings Cross Steelers


Craig Hunter - Chef de Mission for Paralympics GB and British Swimming Board Director

Ben Gifford - Founding member of Out to Swim and Coach

Anthony Alexis - President of London Spikers

Sue Day - Ex England Rugby Player & Director at KPMG

Lou Englefield - Director Pride Sports


The debate will be an opportunity to:

  • Reach beyond our immediate community to educate others
  • Ensure that as a collection of LGBT Sports clubs we remain open to all
  • Raise challenges that may impact on LGBT participation in sport
