On a day that champions inclusion – International Day Against LGBTQIA+ Discrimination (IDAHOBIT) – the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) is proud to announce its new Thrive with Pride ambassadors.

Now in its third year, the program will support seven new athletes and ten returning ambassadors across 13 sports, all of whom are striving to make sport more inclusive for LGBTIQA+ people.
