Research shows that it is in male team sports as it is the biggest problem with the violations and that LGBT people do not feel they fit in.

Therefore, it is especially nice that it’s a male team sport that goes first. The American Football Association (SAFF) in Sweden is the first to get LGBT certification, means a lot for the sport. It is important that especially children and young people are safe in sport and have the opportunity to develop as individuals and sports active, says Sofia B Karlsson, educator of RFSL, to the Radiosporten.

That it is my sport that takes the step is amazing, says Marcus Juhlin, who have come out as gay, said.
