It is Pan Idræt's ambition to create a welcoming and inclusive space that invites exercise, health and community and that creates quality of life both for members and for everyone under the rainbow in Copenhagen in general. The challenges in today's Denmark are still significant for those groups in society whose sexuality and gender identity do not coincide with those of the majority. Living conditions surveys indicate that the target group is overrepresented when it comes to loneliness, depression, alcohol abuse and smoking.
Today, the first contact with the gay community usually takes place through bars and nightlife. This is where young people first gravitate to when they become aware of their sexuality. Newcomers who seek the openness of the big city also seek out the bars, which for many appear as the safe environment where they can meet like-minded people.
Pan Idræt must create an alternative community, and the long-term goal is that by 2025, Pan Idræt should have taken over the position as the primary place for community and networking.
Pan Idræt should be the place to go to meet others, network and find friends. This is where you build new relationships after coming out, and find like-minded people without there being a precondition for consuming alcohol and smoking. The focal point should instead be sport and community.
By 2025, Pan Idræt should have made it easier to be part of the rainbow community in Denmark. In 2025, the target group should have a much more solid network, people should feel more included and it should be much healthier to live openly with your sexuality or gender identity.
