Sponsored by EY, Jersey Pride in Sport aims to raise awareness and tackle the issues of racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and sexism in sport.
In collaboration with EY and Liberate, we are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels like they belong.
It’s only when people feel truly accepted that they can perform at their best.
Racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, sexism and other prejudicial language can all too often be heard within sport settings and often gets dismissed as ‘banter’. The words we use matter and make the difference between an inclusive space or one that feels exclusive and intimidating for people from minority groups.
This is why we are asking as many sports people as possible to show their support for Jersey Pride In Sport by wearing rainbow laces and sweatbands – ideally during sporting activity.
Whatever your sport, wearing your rainbow merchandise in support of Jersey Pride in Sport, demonstrates your commitment to making sport an inclusive and discrimination-free space.
Thanks to sponsors EY, sports organisations can collect their rainbow merchandise from our Sports Partnership Officer, Libby Barnett on:
Please note: merchandise will be distributed to sports on a first come, first served basis. For further information, please contact: email@example.com

Developed in partnership between Liberate Jersey and Jersey Sport, this workshop promotes diversity, inclusion and equality in sport.
Sport has the power to unite people, but it can also be the arena where individuals allow feelings of hate and prejudice to come out. Why does sport have these problems? Is it unique to sport or part of being human? And what can we do about it as leaders in our sports organisations, or in the moment as officials, coaches or players to promote positive change?
To highlight Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Sport, Liberate Jersey are delivering this two-hour workshop for the sporting community which takes a look at issues of diversity, inclusion, fairness, equality, respect and acceptance within sport.
Meet Roísín and read her inspiring story about how as a disabled, transgender athlete she overcame adversity to inspire others to be the best they can be, whatever limiting factors and challenges they face.
