how to get involved…

One of the best ways to get involved as an individual is by joining Racing Pride as a member! The Racing Pride member community is for LGBTQ+ people and allies who are either in, or are interested in, motorsport and the automotive industry. It gives access to online and real life networking, events, and more. Find out about membership here.

You can also download, read and share this guide on being an ally to the LGBTQ+ motorsport community.

A very easy way to help us is simply to follow, like, and share our social media content in order to show your support for LGBTQ+ inclusivity in motorsport and for our vision.

We are also very keen to hear from those within and outside of the motorsport industry who are able to help us to achieve our aims.

As well as expanding our growing family of industry partners, we are seeking Ally Companies to finance promotion and visibility, to support the careers of the Driver Ambassadors in order to create some desperately needed role-models for aspiring LGBTQ+ participants in motorsport, and to hold events such as panel discussions, media briefings, and networking occasions.
