  • Looking for advice on communicating LGBT+ inclusion?

Sports Media LGBT+ is a welcoming network and advocacy group that is helping to build a community of LGBT+ people and allies in sport.

If you’re currently in a role in sport / sports media or looking for such a role – and you’re LGBT+ or an ally – we’re keen to connect with you.

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.

Looking for LGBT+ sports content? Check out our Recommended page!

We’re here to help – whether it’s a one-to-one chat; 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.

We welcome your pitches and suggestions for content on our Google News ranked website and busy social channels. Ideas, press releases, blogs, podcasts, video… get in touch to explore the opportunities. We can also connect you up with other LGBT+-friendly media publishers through our extensive contacts.

Email our network lead Jon Holmes at jon@sportsmedialgbt.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.

For all general enquiries, email info@sportsmedialgbt.com, or use the contact form below.

We also operate a mailing list, which currently has over 700 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 LinkedInFacebook (‘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.
