At Zwift, we’re proud of our LGBTQIA+ community and are excited to celebrate the vibrancy and importance behind this movement. We believe in acceptance and inclusion for all athletes—all year long.

While we acknowledge the progress that has been made since the 1969 StoneWall Riots, this year alone has been record-breaking with more than 200 anti-LGBTQIA+ bills filed so far. Despite these challenges, Zwift has found creative ways to continue the support of our LGBTQIA+ community. From investing in the education of our allies to supporting advocacy efforts near and far, we have taken the following steps to ensure a more inclusive and welcoming community for ALL athletes:

  1. We’ve partnered with Athlete Ally for the fourth year in a row. We’re proud to continue this partnership and support their work to educate the global community about transgender inclusion in sport. This organization also continues to oppose anti-LGTBQIA+ policies that impact athletes across the US and around the world.
  2. We’ve joined 200+ companies who have signed the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Business Statement on Anti LGBTQIA+ State Legislation in opposition of harmful legislation towards the LGBTQIA+ community across the country. At Zwift, we recognize the damaging impacts of policies and legislation that exclude LGBTQIA+ people from participating in society and the detrimental impacts on their quality of life, mental health, and safety. This is one way we’re taking steps to make sure we’re influencing leaders to keep our communities safe.
  3. We’re celebrating with the LGBTQIA+ community during the 2022 Long Beach and London Pride events. Pride marches take place in cities across the world to build visibility, acceptance, and legal support for the LGBTQIA+ community. Zwift is proud to be attending Pride in two of our flagship locations: Long Beach, California and London.
