With general health outcomes for LGBTQ+ people are consistently lower than the average across the population. Physical activity may play a role in improving the mental and physical health of the LGBTQ+ population and this section provides insight into their experiences of sport and physical activity and how it impacts their wider health.
We know that women and girls are less likely to be active than men, with women facing a number of practical and emotional barriers preventing them from being as active as they would like to be. It is important to recognise and understand the specific barriers women and girls face, which include fear of judgement and a lack of time, so that we can work to address these barriers when redesigning moving back into daily life. Here you will find the latest research related to the physical activity and sport levels, motivations and barriers related to gender.
