Changing the Game: The GLSEN Sports Project


Would an LGBT student feel comfortable being honest about their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression in PE or when participating in an after school sports program? Do you know if your school’s physical education classes and sports programs are safe and fun for everyone regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity/expression?

Changing the Game: The GLSEN Sports Project is here to help you evaluate your school and to implement changes, ensuring your school is respectful and safe for all.

We’ve made it easy to find and use the resources you most need. We’ve organized them by the role you play in your school. We have resources designed for students and student athletes as well as for adults including parents, coaches and school personnel such as Athletic Directors, PE Teachers or Educators.

First, evaluate what kind of environment your school has by using one of our climate checklists. Then, you can implement a game plan to ensure your school has a winning strategy.

Don’t forget to check out the Game Changers videos below to learn more about what other students are doing to help change the game.

GLSEN may also be able to come to your school or school district! Contact us at sportsproject@glsen.org to find out more or tweet us at @GLSENSports and let us know how things are going.
