LGBT+-inclusive sports community in London and the South East set to gather for night of celebration at City Hall…
Inspirational individuals and outstanding sports club achievements are set to be honoured at a special event being held at City Hall in London on the evening of Friday, November 1.
Out For Sport – the umbrella organisation for over 50 LGBT+-inclusive sports clubs and teams across London and the South East – is celebrating its 21st birthday this year by holding its first awards ceremony.
Tickets for the celebratory get-together on the capital’s South Bank are on sale now for just £5, with entertainment, guaranteed glitz and an after-party thrown in for the low price, as well as the important business of the awards themselves.
Nominees for the 10 categories have recently been announced, with several clubs familiar to those with an interest in the LGBT+ sports scene in London receiving nods, while many less feted teams and their members are in with a shout of glory too.
Rugby union, boxing, martial arts, badminton and swimming are just a few of the sports represented.
The gala night is the brainchild of Out To Swim’s Vicki Carter, who is also the co-chair of Out For Sport and who raised over £1000 for vital funding by swimming the English Channel in July – an exhausting distance of around 21 miles, which she navigated in a time of 14 hours and 40 minutes.
Sports Media LGBT+ is a proud supporter of Out For Sport, which performs a crucial role in keeping lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and non-binary people in the region healthy and active. Vicki addressed the audience at our #AuthenticMe event at Twitter HQ in London on October 8, and received a big round of applause for her achievement!
