What is Sports Day?

Every August bank holiday, since 2007, hundreds of members of the LGBTQ+ community have been flocking to the 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:

Egg and spoon race
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.

LGBT HERO’s main aim is to help LGBTQ+ people tackle the health and social inequalities they face while creating a platform for LGBTQ+ people to create personal and social change.
