At least 35 out LGBTQ athletes in Beijing Winter Olympics, a record

By Outsports  Updated Jan 31, 2022


At least 35 publicly out gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, pansexual and non-binary athletes will be in Beijing for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, double the amount who competed in 2018, including the largest share of men.

The athletes will compete in nine different sports from Feb. 4-20, including 12 in ice hockey and 10 in figure skating. Of the skaters, eight are men, one is non-binary and one is pansexual. The pansexual athlete, Amber Glenn, is an alternate and is currently not slated to compete. All of the out ice hockey players are women.

We did not have an out male Winter Olympian until the 2018 Games, when there were four out of the 15 total out athletes. In Beijing, there will be at least 11 men, almost one-third of the total. At the Tokyo Summer Games last year, the ratio of out women to men was 9 to 1.

Various countries have multiple out athletes we have been able to identify at these Games, including Canada (10), the United States (six), Great Britain (four), Sweden (three), France (two) and the Czech Republic (two).
