MY GENDER, MY PRIDE, MY SPORT

Stichting Pride and Sports is the national platform in the Netherlands for LGBTQ+ (Queer) in sport. Pride and Sports is committed to a safe and inclusive sports climate for all athletes, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or gender characteristics.


This year, Pride and Sports will sail with its own sports boat, thanks to Philips obtaining the ‘support card’. A great opportunity that we seize to put young queer athletes in the spotlight through the still too underexposed Urban Sports!


Our message: My Gender My Pride My Sport; creating a safe space is a TEAM effort!
Only together we are strong enough to initiate the change that is sorely needed in the world of sport as well!
Besides these and other known and unknown queersporters, also the ambassadors of Pride and Sport are sailing along, who have worked hard in the past years to increase the awareness and visibility of Pride and Sports nationwide. As a result, many people, including policy makers and sports associations, now know how to find us and follow us more quickly.
Pride and Sports has been connecting numerous sports and athletes since 2017 during the annual ‘Pride Park’, ‘Boat Parade’ and ‘Pride Walk’ of Pride Amsterdam. On these days Pride and Sports emphasizes the importance of a safe and inclusive sports climate and advises visitors how they can work towards a more inclusive and safe sports policy at their own club. In addition, they give marginalised groups such as transgender people or status holders the opportunity to take part in a self-protection training course (LGBT Krav Maga).
