This book explores and critically assesses the challenges and experiences of LGBTQ people within sport in Europe, presenting in-depth comparative surveys of systems and experiences from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the UK and Spain.

Furthermore, we will discuss the implications and the new perspectives brought by the latest IOC framework on fairness, inclusion and non-discrimination on the basis of Gender Identity and Sex Variations.
