We are an inclusive, straight-friendly organisation who work closely with our allies to disrupt homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and interphobia in boxing and sport in general. We believe in the modern world it is also about championing confidence, health and wellness, love, community and friendship.
Our aim is to promote boxing to and amongst the LGBTQI+ and wider community, providing opportunities for LGBTQI+ people to compete in the sport of boxing in a safe and friendly environment.
We will hold a successful boxing championship aligned with AIBA Rules ensuring that no individual shall be excluded, shamed or intimidated from participating based on sexual orientation or identification. Boxing Australia Limited (BAL), the peak body for the sport in Australia, and Boxing Australia NSW (BNSW) are providing institutional support to WGBC.
All events will be sanctioned by a boxing authority with safety our number one priority.
