Martin Stark started the World Gay Boxing Championship (WGBC) to stop homophobia and transphobia in the sport.
The WGBC has built a relationship with the amateur boxing community in Australia to create something that has never existed before.
Martin says the inaugural competition created new ground for conversations and removed barriers for LGBTQIA+ people with an interest in boxing on a global stage:
“It is a boxing competition where everyone is able to participate in a friendly and welcoming environment, visible allyship of professional Australian and world boxing champions, and a celebration of the sport.”
