Making Sport Safe, Comfortable and Inclusive for LGBTI people with James Lolicato - PTE032
In this episode, an Australian organisation that's transforming LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex) people's attitudes towards sports participation - bringing them back to the games they love. Why do so many LGBTI young people stop playing sports between 16 and 20? And what teaching strategies can we use to turn this situation around - to make physical education and sports environments more inclusive? Plus, what can you do - if you're in an unsafe, unwelcoming sports environment? There's also the Lightning Round where we're pushing the edges of participation, body image, pronouns and feeling welcome in sport.
