Much of sport is organized by sex or gender; however, not every athlete fits into or identifies with the binary of male and female. Creating welcoming, inclusive teams for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-identified, queer, intersex and two spirited community and allies is new territory for many sport organizations. Resources created by CAAWS and the Canadian Center for Ethics in Sport provide information and guidance for inclusion to make Canadian sport a positive space for all athletes.
