Stand Up Events (SUE) Melbourne Inc. is an incorporated association dedicated to fighting sexual and gender discrimination in Australian sport.
Stand Up is conducting world first research with Monash University to understand why homophobia is still prevalent in male team dominated sports. Based on this research, we are have created customised preventative programs with AFL Players to implement into grass roots sporting clubs, with the goal of raising awareness of the detrimental impact that derogatory language and behaviour has on people.
The goal is for the programs to create safe and inclusive environments for everyone – regardless of their sexuality and/or gender. Sport, and life, is a place for everyone.
On top of our research and preventative programs, we do speaking events, work with the sporting clubs and schools. We work with the AFL and their players, and run awareness campaigns and events.
Profits from any events that we run go back into our operational aims, including paying Monash for their services.
If you would like to learn more, we would love to hear from you.
