Commonwealth Games: Countries with homophobic laws unlikely to host

Countries where is it illegal to be gay are less likely to host the Commonwealth Games in the future, the head of its federation has said.

More than half of the 54 countries competing in Birmingham 2022 have laws against same sex relationships.

LGBT athletes will be able to wave the rainbow flag on the podium for the first time at the Games.

Katie Sadlier, of the Commonwealth Games Federation, said it “embraces inclusiveness in everything we do”.

The opening ceremony of Birmingham 2022 will take place at the Alexander Stadium in the city on Thursday.

Speaking ahead of the event, the chief executive of the federation said it had a lot of “exceptional” athletes from the LGBT community and it worked closely with them to raise their visibility.
