Compared to other groups, data on the physical activity levels of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) community - and the sport they play - is less well established. The sport and physical activity sector is working with community groups to better understand what works for them.
Research informing action
In 2016, we commissioned Pride Sports to do a 10-week study examining the levels of participation of LGBT+ people in sport. The Sport, Physical Activity and LGBT+ report was the first step of many in our journey to engaging more LGBTQ+ people to take part in sport and physical activity.
Based on the findings from the report, we’ve been developing key actions designed to help encourage more people to get active.
