A recent study of B.C. youth indicated that gay, lesbian, and bisexual teens are half as likely to play sports as their straight peers. To create an inclusive and welcoming sport sector for the LGBTQI2S community in B.C., viaSport has partnered with the You Can Play Project. viaSport is leading the B.C. sport sector to create a culture of awareness and inclusivity, and You Can Play is an organization dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression. This partnership is the first of its kind in Canada, and B.C. is the first province to partner with the You Can Play Project.
