Coming soon, on March 2016!



We are organizing the fifth edition of Jocs Taronja to take place on the 4th, 5th and 6th March 2016. We are expecting to attend over 250 athletes from different Spanish and European clubs to participate in the competitions of volleyball, swimming and football.  

Samarucs València is supported by the European Federation for Gay and Lesbian Sport.

 

Sports and claim

Homophobia in sports

We believe that sport is an educational element of the first order, as part of the physical and mental health, a social integrator. In many ways, Western societies have normalized homosexuality in the last decades. However, there are still areas where it has to claim the visibility of homosexuality or even fight against discrimination. One area where there is still homophobic behavior is sports; as social pressure prevents gay athletes (we also talk about professional athletes) disclose their sexual orientation.

Therefore, this is one of the main reasons for the existence of LGBT sports clubs and associations that, by combining leisure and assertive aspects, fight against discrimination in sport and contribute to positive change in the minds of many athletes in order to break barriers and overcome topics.

These clubs organize friendly matches and tournaments between LGBT groups and conventional clubs. Allowing an exchange of values, promote the integration and coexistence of athletes regardless of their sexual orientation and overcome barriers in sports.

LGBT sporting competitions

Throughout the year there are in Europe about 90 tournaments which bring together thousands of athletes, major European cities host these tournaments: Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Manchester, Prague, Zurich, Budapest, Vienna, Frankfurt, Brussels, London, Rome ...

In Spain, the LGBT sporting tradition comes from Panteres Grogues of Barcelona and Madrid Halegatos sports clubs that organize sport tournaments and promote LGBT in the Spain since 1994, and Club Esportiu Samarucs Valencia joined them in this task in 2003.

 

Business and institutional volunteers and collaboration

Of course, the celebration of an event of this magnitude is a major human and financial effort. Because of their size, projects like this do need the support of all people, agencies, institutions and companies that want to get involved.

We invite you to join us. If you are interested in collaborating, get in touch with us through any of the email adress you can find on our website
