Venue: American Express Community Stadium, Brighton BN1

Timing: Saturday 15th April 2017 10.00am – 4.00pm

Speakers from the world of sport – amateur and professional – will explore the issues and barriers that discourage LGBT women from participating.

We aim to find ways to support and inspire LGBT women to get involved in sport – both in organised and informal settings . .

Welcoming delegates will be Joanie Evans and Sophia Rodriguez. Joanie is Co-President of the Federation of Gay Games and was instrumental in establishing the first lesbian football club based in Hackney, London. Sophia is chair of the FGG’s Diversity Committee which has been examining the issue of increasing participation in the Gay Games.

Delegate places are available free of charge to interested women from the LGBT community and their straight allies.
