  • stimulate integration in sport and emancipation of lesbians and gays
  • enable and support the coming out of gay and lesbian sports men and women
  • exchange information and enable co-ordination between European sport groups and tournaments
  • support the founding of new gay / lesbian / bisexual / straight / transgendered and mixed sport groups
