Building Confidence

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. 


181 Athletes

500+ Spectators

"It felt good to break some gay stereotypes "

Including Everyone

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!

Check Out Our Impact

Participation is a key value that we promote as we try to encourage and get the community involved with either a sport or the event. 

85% of Aussie sport participants have experienced or witnessed homophobia in a sporting environment (Out on the Fields Survey, 2015).

Pride Sports Festival showcases over seven different local clubs and their inclusive cultures, helping more people feel welcome on the field. We create an environment where the community feels welcome. 

It gave me hope for an inclusive world"
