About LEAP Sports Scotland

LEAP Sports Scotland works for greater inclusion for LGBTI people in sport and against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

LEAP Sports Scotland (Leadership, Equality and Active Participation in Sports for LGBTI people in Scotland) works for greater inclusion for LGBTI people in sport and against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in a sports context. We are committed to breaking down the structural, social and personal barriers which prevent lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people across the country from accessing, participating and excelling in Scottish sports.

Sport and all the benefits it brings should be for everyone and we are dedicated to making Scotland a proud leader in the ongoing campaign to recognise and celebrate diversity in sport.

We work with the sports sector, community groups and other stakeholders from all across Scotland to pursue our five key objectives:

  1. To advance community development through supporting the development of LGBTI sports organisations and their leaders across Scotland.
  2. To promote equality and diversity through challenging discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity within sport, and to work towards the visibility and inclusion of LGBTI people in mainstream sports.
  3. To promote equality and diversity through influencing national agencies, governing bodies and leaders within mainstream sports, and to support them to implement policies of equality and inclusion.
  4. To organise recreational activities which improve the quality of life for LGBTI people encouraging and enabling them to overcome the barriers which block their access to sport.
  5. To further the advancement of public participation in sport by using the opportunities and legacy of sports events as an opportunity for LGBTI sports development and growth.
