Shownotes

In recent years, the media has depicted women's sports as a safe haven for queer women. But what about queer men? Trans folks? Or gender non-conforming people? This week, we seek to understand the queer experience in sport, how it differs between various gender expressions, and how we can work to make sport more inclusive. To do so, Sara welcomes Sports Psychologist and Researcher, Dr. Vikki Krane.

Vikki chats about the toxic masculinity enwrapped in sport, and how this influences safe spaces for queer folks. Further, they outline how women's sports need more resources and an overall cultural appreciation to come further into the mainstream. Finally, Vikki discusses trans inclusion and how we can work to make a new system in which segregation based on gender isn't necessary.
