More signatures on UK Sport Charter against homophobia

From PinkNews.co.uk:

British tennis champions have signed up to the government’s Sports Charter on tackling homophobia and transphobia in sport.

British number one Elena Baltacha and number two Anne Keothavong signed the Sports Charter, along with former British player Katie O’Brien.

They were joined by members of the Lawn Tennis Association at the signing.

Signing the charter commits the association and players to actively challenge all forms of homophobic and transphobic abuse or discrimination.

Dale Park, the association’s Equality and Diversity Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to have so many colleagues, volunteers and elite players sign the charter.

“We have seen great support from the LTA with the CEO, President and Deputy President all signing the Charter along with high profile players Elena Baltacha and Anne Keothavong, and former player Katie O’Brien.

“This sets a great example to everyone who plays, coaches and watches tennis on the type of environment we expect across British tennis.”
