Event description

Description

This workshop is meant to begin conversations surrounding heterosexism (homophobia) and cissexism (transphobia) within sports which typically involves exclusionary policies and professional challenges surrounding coming out. We will begin by introducing definitions, culture and community history before facilitating an honest discussion around slurs from the audience, locker room challenges and on the field/management challenges directed towards LGBTQ athletes. This will be implemented through examining the histories of exclusion (ie. Gender verification testing) that results in athletes facing extreme levels of emotional trauma, public and media ridicule and being banned from participation. Finally, participants will learn how to address homophobia and transphobia in sports and ways to become an ally within their organizations.
