Closed physical recreation spaces can mitigate the amount of body scrutiny, homophobia, and transphobia that unfortunately is so common in many sports environments. This event is intended to create a space that is safer and affirming of people with a variety of sexualities and genders. Our aim through this event is to give members of the 2SLGBTQ2+ an opportunity to swim in a space that creates a better environment which will allow them to freely express themselves and their gender identity.
If you are interested in other recreational activities, Pride Week Dodgeball will take place on Thursday, March 12th from 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend. Please visit uab.ca/pride for a list of all events happening this week!
