Fair Go Sport round begins on Friday 31 July.
The “Fair Go, Sport!” project began in 2011 in conjunction with hockey’s state and national governing bodies, before support came from other sporting codes, including football and basketball.
The project was conceived after research indicated that “sport is a significant site of homophobic harassment, discrimination and exclusion,” the Fair Go website said.
In conjuntion with Hockey Victoria, a three part plan to increase awareness of sexual and gender diversity, promote safe and inclusive sporting environments and spread the message to other codes was launched.
FHC encourage all members to celebrate Fair Go, Sport!
