Physical activity has positive mental and physical health benefits. And yet, physical activity can be unwelcoming to transgender and non-binary participants. A Pride Sports study (2016) showed that transphobic language, and the acceptance of transphobic banter, continue to pervade physical activity environments. Drawing on new research from Bournemouth University involving a local transgender social group Communi-T and their positive and negative experiences of swimming, our expert panel discuss what more can be done to open up physical activity opportunities to transgender and non-binary communities.
