JUST A BALL GAME? MEDIA RELEASE- For immediate release.
A university sports faculty anti-discrimination survey-based initiative
The campaign organisation Just a Ball Game? is pleased to be directly supporting a UK university initiative to promote effective change in combatting homophobia and related LGBT discrimination in sport. JBG? asks all national, regional and local level LGBT equality and inclusivity in sport campaigning and sports organisations (including football, rugby, athletics clubs that have inclusive anti-discrimination values and equality and diversity policies and programmes) to support this important initiative.
The Bournemouth University Sports Faculty survey and project is an outcome of partnership with the Olympics legacy ‘Time for Change – Now!’ anti-homophobia in sport exhibition organisation -- Website: www.timeforchange-now.co.uk
The research project findings will contribute to the creation of a guidelines paper in which current gaps and effective engagement issues in tackling homophobia in sport and making sport more inclusive for LGBT’s, will be identified. The paper will be principally intended for the use of the UK sports industry, amateur and professional sports clubs, and school PE/sports teachers.
To participate in the survey please use the following links to the online questionnaires:
