LGBT – SIRCuit
Did You Know
There is very little Canadian data so far on the reality of LGBT athletes. A recent study confirms that homophobia is still present in Canadian sport and that it affects all athletes, regardless of their sexual orientation. Indeed, 30% of heterosexual athletes, 67% of LGB athletes and 85% of trans athletes experienced at least one homophobic episode. Nevertheless, there is an improvement, 97% of heterosexual athletes say they are very comfortable or comfortable with having LGBT teammates. And the culture of sport continues to change.
