Want to learn about our network and advocacy group, and connect with us?
Interested in sharing news, or even your personal story?
Sports Media LGBT+ is a welcoming network that is helping to build a community of LGBT+ people and allies in sport.
If you’re currently in a sports media role or looking for work in the industry, and you’re LGBT+, please reach out to us.
And if you’re LGBT+ or an active ally with a different type of role in sport or media, we’d love to hear from you too. Learn more about the background to the group here.
One of our main objectives is to help amplify the voices of LGBT+ people at all levels of sport, to show how authenticity boosts performance, and to demonstrate the benefits of an inclusive environment.
We are keen to work with you – whether it’s collaborating on content that helps to raise the profile of your team or club; sharing a powerful personal story that can inspire others; partnering on an event; or another opportunity. Rainbow Laces 2019 is coming – be a part of it!
You can email our network lead Jon Holmes at email@example.com.
We’re also keen to build professional relationships across both the wider sports and media industries, and collaborate with individuals and organisations that have similar goals to our own. Check out some of our connections here.
On all matters, we naturally value the contributions of allies – people who aren’t LGBT+ themselves, but who are supportive of diversity and inclusion initiatives.
And if you’re not already working in sports media in some shape or form, but it’s a profession you’d like to pursue – and you’re LGBT+ or an ally – you’d be welcome as a member of our network too.
For all general enquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact form below.
We also operate a mailing list, which currently has over 500 recipients – you’re welcome to sign up.
As a network, we communicate via occasional meet-ups and get-togethers, through social media on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and via approval-required groups on LinkedIn, Facebook (‘Members’) and WhatsApp.
If you’re interested in joining either of the last three groups, we can provide all the details.
Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you.
