Come and meet some of the 40+ LGBT+ sports clubs in London, hear more about what they do and where they train, and how you can get involved.

There are opportunities for people of all abilities, for total beginners, and for both casual and competitive sports. There will be a bar open for the whole of the event, and feel free to bring your friends!

We will be joined by more than 25 of London’s friendliest LGBT+ Sport Clubs sharing information on their membership and events, plus representation from Pride in London, and the Federation of Gay Games (Hong Kong 2022). 

London South Bank University is proud to be working with Out for Sport to host the LGBT+ Sports Fair and Party this year. We are also committed to providing support to our LGBT+ staff, students and alumni, and as well as taking part in the Annual London Pride parade, we are a top 120 member of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
