Creating a safe space and welcoming, inclusive environment for LGBTIQ+ supporters, athletes, staff, volunteers and organisations at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

Celebrate

Pride House Birmingham will include a programme of entertainment, drawing on the best talent from across the region. Themes are: Sports and Human Rights / Queer sport and the Commonwealth / Celebration of local queer culture / Diversity of the Second City and its relationship with the Commonwealth

Participate

Pride House Birmingham will work to promote LGBTIQ+ participation in sport and physical activity. We're working with a range of local people and organisations, both within LGBTIQ+ communities and networks, and within wider sport and physical activity provision. We want a legacy of healthy, happy, active LGBTIQ+ people across the West Midlands.

Educate

Our education programming will see work with schools at all key stages, centred on the theme that “Everyone is welcome in Birmingham”. Our youth programming will see LGBTIQ+ young people create their own programming to explore themes of the diversity of the Commonwealth, LGBTIQ+ human rights and sport.
