What is Sports Day?
Every August bank holiday, since 2007, hundreds of members of the LGBTQ+ community have been flocking to the RVT Sports Day at the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, behind the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, to help to raise money for LGBT HERO. Some of the events include:
- Tug of war
- Sack Race
- 50m mince
- Drag race relay
- Three legged race
- Handbag toss
- Rhythmic gymnastics (This is the best event!)
What does Sports Day do?
The money raised on Sports Day goes directly to LGBT HERO which helps LGBTQ+ people to lead happier and healthier lives. LGBT HERO does this by offering trusted information and advice while providing various types of support including group, peer and one-to-one support on issues including gender and sexuality, sexual wellbeing, mental wellbeing, feeling suicidal and general health. The issues that affect us the most as a community.
