The festival brings friends and families together, giving players the confidence to do things they would never have imaged. Through building confident communities, the festival strengthens participants' response to challenges, such as the increased rates of anxiety and depression the LGBTQI+ community faces.
Last Year's Success
Pride Sports Festival 2018 brought the community together for the first event of its kind in Perth, WA.
"It felt good to break some gay stereotypes "
The Festival champions fun and festivity, rather than best-on-field performances. There are prizes for the 'Best Team Goal Celebration' and 'Proudest Player', not just the savviest sportsperson. At half time, even the crowd can get involved and win a prize or two!
