‘Coaching and Teaching LGBT Youth’: by Graham Spacey
Continuing with celebrating Pride month, we wanted to share another entry, this time about our very own Senior Evaluation and Learning Consultant, Graham Spacey, and his work on LGBTQ issues.
Many of those familiar with our work at inFocus will know Graham is the lead with some of our main projects, such as the Sports Unites programme with the Mayor of London. Graham works on many of our sport for change projects due to his extensive background within the sector.
As part of celebrating Pride month, we wanted to share some of Graham’s work on LGBTQ issues, and literature he has contributed to within the field, you can find links below to two books whre he has contributed chapters with Dr. Jayne Caudwell (University of Bournemouth) and Dr. Gillian Teidemann (University of Brighton):
– Teaching LGBT Youth – Theory and Practice in Coaching and Teaching LBGT Youth (Routledge 2020)
– Football 4 Peace v Homophobia: A critical exploration of the links between theory, practice and intervention in Critical Research in Sport, Health and Physical Education: How to Make a Difference (Routledge 2018)
We feel very lucky to have Graham’s experience and knowledge within the team at inFocus, and we’re proud to highlight his efforts with LGBTQ issues.
Whilst we’re at it, we’d also like to congratulate Graham on the imminent completion of his Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Johannesburg (Faculty of Health Sciences)!
