That of athletes who were out at the Tokyo Olympics has continued to grow. At least publicly out gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and nonbinary athletes were in Tokyo for the Summer Olympic Games, more than triple the who participated at the Rio Games. The of publicly out LGBTQ athletes in Tokyo is also greater than the athletes who have participated in all of the Olympic Games — Summer and Winter — combined while publicly out.
The massive increase in the of out athletes reflects the growing acceptance of LGBTQ people in sports and society. The rise of social media, especially Instagram, has given athletes a forum where they can live their lives openly and identify directly with their followers.
In contrast, Outsports counted 23 publicly out Olympians in and 56 in at those Summer Games.
Thormeyer was not out when he competed at the Rio Olympics and came out publicly as gay in a essay for Outsports. His comments were echoed by Elissa Alarie, a Canadian rugby player. We originally did not have Alarie on our list, but she contacted us and told us she was LGBTQ she also gave us the names of three out teammates whom we also added. This year at least 30 different countries were represented by at least one publicly out athlete in at least 34 sports, including the first trans Olympians.
The United States had the most out athletes at these Olympics, with 36 out athletes we know of, about a fifth of all the attendees on the list. We will update the s as we learn more about the current Olympic athletes. These s include reserve athletes who have been practicing with the team and are traveling to Tokyo with the team. This continues a trend seen at past Olympics and is reflective of out athletes in elite non-Olympic sports where women also proliferate. To be included on the Outsports list of out LGBTQ Olympians, an athlete has to have come out publicly in the media, or they have to be clearly out on their public-facing social media.
If someone has not made a public declaration to the media that they are LGBTQ, they can still be included on this list if they are openly living their life as an out person on social media, particularly if they have made clear they are in a same-sex relationship. We also work with LGBT historian Tony Scupham-Biltonwho runs the blog The Queerstory Files, to compile the most extensive list anywhere, and each athlete has a link below to some aspect of them being publicly out. We know we likely have missed some out athletes, especially those who are non-Americans, as Outsports is based in the United States.
If you know of an out LGBTQ athlete not on the list, or have any other inquiry, please via outsports gmail.
