Our Our in Sport report was the first significant look into the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGBT) students in sport. The research found that while a majority of LGBT students do participate in some form of sporting or fitness activity, and the majority of those participating in team sports were having a positive experience doing so, there were significant barriers faced by many LGBT students in deciding to participate in sport in the first place, and there were a significant minority of LGBT students who had had negative experiences of participating in sport.

Out in sport and its recommendations are aimed at improving the sporting experiences of all LGBT students, but unions can take particular action to support trans students to participate in sport and to enjoy it to the fullest extent possible.
