Pride in Sport

June 16th, 2018 - submitted by the black angels

What does pride in sport mean to you?


At Melbourne University Basketball Club, pride in sport means that everyone is given a fair opportunity to participate in basketball without fear of harassment or exclusion. It means everyone is welcome at our club, no matter their sexual orientation and/or gender identity AND it means we are proud of our LGBTIQA+ members, supporters, alumni and peers.

That is why on Saturday June 23, in collaboration with Melbourne University Sport, we are hosting a Pride in Sport event during our Big V double header. Come and join us for an exciting night of basketball, celebrating our LGBTIQA+ community and raising awareness of the need for acceptance, equality and more inclusive spaces in sport and fitness.
