The Outsport project - Innovative and educational approaches to prevent violence and tackle discrimination in sport based on sexual orientation and gender identity - is a project granted by the European Commission through the Erasmus Plus Sport program in 2017-19. The project aims to address homophobia and transphobia in sport through communication, awareness-raising, training and scientific research, and by using sport itself as a tool to improve inclusion in and through sport. Outsport was also among the first initiatives at European level to gather scientific evidence on the phenomena of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and interphobia1 in sport, and to set itself the ambitious aim of enhancing the sports world as a place of training and countering discrimination in parallel with the school and the family. The project involved partner organisations from five European countries: Italy, Scotland, Germany, Austria and Hungary.
