LGBTQ+ People

We are committed to creating safe environments for the LGBTQ+ community in all areas and levels of the game.

Cricket Australia is committed to creating safe and welcoming environment for the LGBTQ+ community to engage with all aspects of our sport.  Through our partnership with Pride in Sport we are focused on continuing to develop strategies and commit to actions to ensure all individuals can engage with cricket authentically. 

In 2019 Cricket Australia launched Guidelines for the inclusion of Transgender and Gender Diverse people in community cricket as well as an elite policy for those playing at the top level of the game. Australian Cricket supports the participation of gender diverse and transgender people electing to participate in Cricket in accordance with their Gender Identity. You can download the Guidelines below.

Zero Tolerance Statement

Cricket is a sport for all and as such Cricket Australia has a zero-tolerance approach towards homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in our sport and workplace. Bullying, harassment or vilification of people based on their gender identity and/or sexuality is not tolerated.
