The Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE is organising an inclusive LGBTIQ+ football game on Saturday 3 June 2023 at 14:00 at the Stade Josy Barthel in Luxembourg-Belair.

According to the organisers, this event aims to provide a safe space for LGBTIQ+ individuals to engage in sports activities, but it is also meant to promote inclusivity and raise awareness. The Centre CIGALE has invited players, referees and supporters to participate.

The programme includes the football game itself, a show, a barbecue, snacks and drinks. Entry is free, but registration is required via email to by the deadline of 22 May 2023.

The Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE is an organisation created in 2002, dedicated to supporting the LGBTIQ+ community in Luxembourg, i.e. individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer, as well as anyone interested in topics related to sexual and gender diversity.

This event is meant to provide the LGBTIQ+ community allies a space to engage in sports but also address the challenges and discrimination faced by the LGBTIQ+ community in sports, notably transgender and intersex individuals.

After the football game, the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE will host a roundtable discussion on the topic of queer people in sports and discuss how sports clubs in Luxembourg can become more LGBTIQ+ inclusive. The aim is to thereby reach a wider audience, raise awareness of inter- and transphobia in football and other sports, and promote the creation of inclusive spaces and the training of professionals.

All the services provided at the Centre CIGALE are free for the community. Volunteers also support the organisation and running of events, activities, and interventions in schools, youth homes and various information stands. Those interested in volunteering can contact the organisation via email:
