This survey aims to better understand the sporting experience of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) athletes and the athletes who train with them. This project is supported financially by Sport Canada and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.


This survey is for all adult canadian athletes (18 years of age and over) regardless of their sexual orientation and their gender expression. Indeed, we want to know the experience of LGBT athletes but we also want to know the experience of the athletes who train with LGBT athletes. The survey will take you between 10 and 15 minutes. You will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the next page. Thank you for your time.
