Pride House

” Pride House aims to create a safe and Inclusive place”

Pride Sports is bringing Pride House to Birmingham, and works to challenge prejudice and discrimination against LGBTIQ+ people in sport. Ultimately, they want LGBTIQ+ to feel welcomed, valued, respected and supported to achieve their best in any sports or physical activity environment, from grassroots to performance sport, and work proactively and in partnership to achieve this. 

  What is Pride Sports/ Pride House?

Pride Sports’ aims are to challenge discrimination against LGBTIQ+ people in sport and improve access to sport and physical activity for LGBTIQ+ people. Whether it’s working with National and International Governing Bodies, County Sports Partnerships, Local Authorities, or grass roots clubs, they are working to make sure LGBTIQ+ people are able to get into sport and have an enjoyable and rewarding experience within sport and physical activity. In working towards these goals Pride Sports: 

  • Campaigns for change 
  • Educates 
  • Promotes good practice 
  • Actively grows LGBTIQ+ participation and satisfaction in sport 

Pride House Birmingham’s mission is “To create a safe space and welcoming, inclusive environment for LGBTIQ+ supporters, athletes, staff, volunteers and organisations at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Creating a lasting legacy for LGBTIQ+ inclusion in sports in the West Midlands and celebrating the diversity of the second city.” 

Pride House Birmingham aims to provide a comprehensive programme of events and activations across a wide range of topics related to LGBTIQ+ communities and linked to the Commonwealth and sport at all levels. 

Pride House Birmingham will utilise a wide range of methods to bring related content to a diverse audience, encouraging participation and understanding from all sectors of the community. 

If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?

£2000 funding would go towards their Picnic In The Park event in June. This will be a celebration of LGBTQ+ sport and physical activity in Birmingham ahead of the Games starting.
