A May 2010 report titled “Come Out To Play” states that nearly half (46.0%) of respondents involved in mainstream sport were NOT OUT as LGBT to anyone. The main reasons given for keeping their sexuality a secret included: Being unsure of sexuality, fear of being judged, harassed, discriminated against, abused, physically assaulted or not feeling safe.  Just 50 per cent of respondents from mainstream clubs reported their club to be welcoming to very welcoming of non-heterosexual people.

Further the report identified the need to understand these issues and create new opportunities for inclusion and participation.
Cycling Victoria is a proud supporter of Fair Go, Sport to promote sexual and gender diversity in cycling.
