Here’s our round-up of last week’s LGBTQI news 🌈


On 18 July, the cover of FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition was unveiled featuring Sam Kerr and Kylian Mbappé on the cover. Whilst other female players have appeared on local editions of the game series, this moment marks the first time a woman has featured on the global cover of EA Sports’ FIFA videogame and the first time a queer player has been featured. 

Sam celebrated the moment with an Instagram post: “From playing as a kid, to being in the game and now on the global cover! It’s a dream come true.”

Sam publicly came out as LGBTQI in an Instagram post last August. We’re so pleased that 2022 is providing some much-needed visibility and recognition in sport for women and LGBTQI people.

And, whilst we’re talking about sports…

Russian tennis player Daria Kasatkina came out as gay stating: “Living in peace with yourself is the only thing that matters and fuck everyone else.”
