11-08-2023 2:00 PM - 11-08-2023 4:00 PM

This seminar is particularly relevant as it coincides with the upcoming 11th Gay Games, set to take place in Hong Kong in 2023 from 3rd to 11th November 2023. During this essential event, esteemed guest speakers and accomplished athletes from Canada, Hong Kong, and the UK will share their personal journeys, shedding light on the barriers they have encountered and the strategies they have utilized to overcome discrimination and exclusion.

Their inspiring success stories aim to motivate and inspire fellow queer athletes and allies, emphasizing the importance of representation and inclusivity across various dimensions, including gender, race, and more. This seminar will provide a platform for open dialogue on equitable policies and regulations for queer and transgender athletes, seeking to strike a balance between inclusion and maintaining fair competition. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the significance of creating supportive environments that embrace the diverse experiences within queer sports communities.

Moreover, this seminar will delve into inclusive initiatives and policies that can level the playing field in sports. Topics of discussion will include the establishment of safe spaces for queer athletes, the implementation of non-discrimination policies, equal funding and sponsorships, and fostering networking opportunities within the sports community. Attendees will have the chance to learn about existing initiatives, exchange ideas, and explore potential improvements for the future.
