“I am truly honoured and really excited to be an Ambassador for the Birmingham 2022 Pride House! This is something very close to my heart and a fabulous opportunity to educate and reach out to people from so many different areas of the commonwealth which could make a vital difference. I can’t wait to celebrate the Games with all the LGBT+ community from Birmingham and around the world.”
"I'm so thrilled to be an Ambassador for Pride House Birmingham in the lead-up to the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Sport is all about equality, and I'm excited to show everyone around the world that anything is possible!"
“I am honoured to be an ambassador for Pride House Birmingham. I think it will be a fantastic space in which we will not only celebrate the diversity of athletes participating in the Commonwealth Games, but welcome all members of the LGBTIQ+ community and their allies in a safe, welcoming and educational environment."
“I am honoured and thrilled to become a Pride House Birmingham Ambassador. It was right before the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow in 2014 that I was dropped from the Indian national team due to Hyperandrogenism Regulations of the World Athletics. Since then, I have fought for my rights to compete the way I was born. Being the first openly lesbian athlete from India, I feel the need to celebrate and embrace difference. Sport is for all and it must provide a safe space for everyone.”
“I’m excited to become the first East Asian ambassador for Pride House as an athlete ambassador and represent Asian LGBTQ athletes. As an advocate and athlete this will be an amazing opportunity to work in unison with Pride House Birmingham to champion diversity and inclusion across sport and bring awareness, highlighting the challenges and barriers Asian LGBTQ athletes face in the athletic community.”
“The opportunity to be able to champion, increase visibility and educate more around the LGBTQ+ community is an exciting one. As a born and bred Brummie, the possibility of competing at a ‘home’ Commonwealth Games is incredibly exciting and the opportunity to combine that with a personal passion was not to be missed.”
"I can't wait to get out on court and represent Scotland at Birmingham 2022! Being part of the ParalympicsGB team and helping to provide record levels of out LGBTQ+ representation at Tokyo 2020 reminded me of the importance of visibility on the international stage. Let's keep shooting for the target, which is liberation for all."
"Bringing Paralympic and World Championship gold medals home to the West Midlands has filled me will immense pride, and I'm also honoured to be a Pride House Ambassador. I'll be cheering on my girlfriend Jude and speaking up for inclusion... I hope we can inspire loads of my fellow Brummies, young and old, as well as those watching around the world to be active and to be authentic."
