“There are a number of barriers preventing access to LGBTI people in sport. New research also shows that 31% of respondents from Scotland state that they had refrained from certain sports as a result of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Festival Fortnight endeavours to provide accessible pathways into sport and sends a message that there is a place for LGBTI people in the world of sport and physical activity.” – LEAP Sports Scotland
