Paris 2024 Pride House - a legacy for more inclusive sport.

Pride House at Paris 2024 will be a place full of life and celebration during the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer at the Peniche Rosa Bonheur on the Seine.

Pride House - Paris 2024 is presenting its entire legacy for a more inclusive sport and a better way of "living together" on the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on 17 May. The ceremony was attended by its partners and by Aurore Berge, Minister for Equality and Fight against Discrimination, Pierre Rabadan, Deputy Mayor of Paris in charge of Sport, Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Seine, Yasmine Camara, Special Delegate for the Olympic and Paralympic Games for the Ile de France region, Marie Barsacq, Director of Impact and Legacy for Paris 2024 and Pascale Reinteau, Co-President of the FIER Foundation.

Made up of three working groups, it aims to propose operational solutions that can be easily implemented by sports federations wishing to work on their inclusion. Each working group focuses on a specific topic, in collaboration with Pride House partners and with guest speakers who provide a real opportunity to share experiences from the field:
