Rainbow Youth for Sporting Equality

Rainbow Youth for Sporting Equality (RYSE) is a multilateral European project designed to improve experiences for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer young people in sport by creating training for sports educators on LGBTIQ+ issues and experiences in sport.

The project has taken a co-production approach working with young people to outline what they expect from an inclusive and non-discriminatory sports environment creating a Rainbow Sports charter. The project has gone on to create training for youth sports educators in improving physical education experiences. The project has aimed to work across different youth sports settings, targeting both formal and non-formal education settings.

The final charter for educators produced by young people can be downloaded here.

The online training for educators can be accessed here.

Our final conference event for the project took place on Saturday 4th December 2021. The full programme can be found as a download here.  As well as an excellent panel with some young people who took part in the project, there are some fantastic guest contributors including:
