Sporting Pride is the recognised sports association for the LGBTQ+ community in Ireland, whose mission is to inspire the LGBTQ+ community to get active.
Working closely with Sport Ireland, 60+ National Governing Bodies (NGBs), 29 Local Sport Partnerships (LSPs), third level institutions and LGBTQ+ sport clubs, Sporting Pride aims to:
increase the number of LGBTQ+ people leading active lives; and
promote the positive benefits of fitness and exercise to one’s physical and mental health and well-being.
We want to help sporting organisations develop inclusive programmes that will continue breaking down barriers, increase participation rates and making sport in Ireland a safe and
welcoming place for the LGBTQ+ community at all levels, whether as players, supporters, coaches, officials or volunteers.
