With the much-anticipated 2024 Paris Summer Olympics approaching in less than two months, Outsports is gearing up to feature the absolute best of Team LGBTQ.

For Pride Month in June, we will be highlighting gay, lesbian, bi and trans athletes who will be competing in Paris this Summer at the Olympic Games.

How many publicly out LGBTQ athletes will compete in Paris for the Summer Olympics? We’ll soon find out, as athletes are named to national teams to compete for gold. At the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games, there were at least 186 publicly out LGBTQ Olympians.

Of course, given rules changes over the last few years, there will again be few or no trans athletes competing outside of the sex-category they were assigned at birth. Trans women are barred from competing in the female category in swimming, track and field and cycling. Yet there could be one or two trans athletes in the female category nonetheless. Stay tuned.

Regardless, during the Paris Olympics, Outsports will be highlighting the out LGBTQ athletes who are competing. They will be from dozens of countries and dozens of sports. There will be gay men, bi women, lesbians and people across the LGBTQ spectrum.

Many of the athletes’ spots at the Paris Olympics are not yet secured. June features many qualifying events, like the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. The rosters of many team sports from around the world will also be named in June.

In the meantime, we will feature an out athlete headed to the Paris Summer Olympics every day during Pride Month. We’ll publish the daily profiles at 12noonET. Come back each day for Pride Month and meet Team LGBTQ!
