Sport Others: Birmingham Commonwealth Games open to allowing Pride flag on podium

Province Games Federation (CGF) CEO Katie Sadleir said coordinators were available to the possibility of competitors bringing the Pride banner onto the platform at the following year’s occasion in Birmingham.

“We will talk competitors throughout the following a half year ahead of the pack up to the Games concerning what that might resemble – yet surely, we are available to that,” Sadleir told the BBC.

Talking at the dispatch of the Commonwealth Sport Pride Network, a drive pointed toward uniting LGBTQ+ competitors, mentors and coordinators from Commonwealth countries, Sadleir said the CGF “totally embraced” competitors’ opportunity of articulation yet added that it would allude to the set of accepted rules.

“We have a set of principles and there are a few perspectives about regard for different contenders and where you do what you do,” Sadleir said.

“According to the point of view of backers and opportunity of articulation, it’s something that we are completely, completely embracing.”

The 2022 Commonwealth Games are planned for July 28 to Aug. 8.
