Homophobia, Gender and Sporting Culture

A report for Sport Allies by Adam Lowe, MSc. & Professor Brendan Gough


In order to launch an effective response to the obstacles we face and as part of our commitment to working from a rigorous evidence base, we have concluded that it is important to have a robust, academic understanding of the existing research into homophobia, with a specific focus on young people and sporting culture.

To this end, we have commissioned academics from Leeds Beckett University to produce the current review in order to inform us in the development of our strategic objectives and the formulation of our content.

The report will be published in October 2016.
