Canadian Women & Sport: Leading the Way—Working with LGBT Athletes and Coaches

Leading the Way: Working with LGBTQ Athletes and Coaches is a comprehensive resource designed for coaches, and is based on the lived experiences of Canadian athletes and coaches. The resource highlights current issues in Canadian sport, from playground to podium, and aims to make sport a more welcoming place for those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans (transgender), two-spirited, queer or questioning (LGBTQ). Leading the Way provides information to help coaches understand LBGTQ-phobia and the negative impact it has on everyone in their sport. It suggests best practices for creating a sport environment that is safe and respectful for all.
