ABOUT

Queer Sporting Alliance (QSA) is Australia and NZ’s largest LGBTIQA+ sporting club.  QSA’s mission is to ensure LGBTIQA+ folk can access and participate in community sport. We have teams playing in: Kaurna/Adelaide

Naarm/Melbourne

Mianjin/Brisbane

Gadigal/Sydney

Nipaluna/Hobart

Garramila/Darwin and NZ.

QSA President and founder Stella Lesic grew up playing community sport in Naarm. Having experienced life as a closeted youth basketballer, they were driven to build safe spaces for everyone to ‘Come Out & Play’.

The club began in 2015 in Naarm as Bushrangers Basketball and moved to their new club name QSA in 2021.

QSA pride themselves on creating safe spaces for LGBTIQA+ folk and their allies to play community sport. They are seeking to generate interest in all players in the LGBTIQA+ community (and allies) who are disengaged from sporting activity or looking for a safe space to play sport. They have a strong focus on supporting the inclusion of transgender and gender diverse players.

QSA are official diversity partners of Transgender Victoria and WNBL powerhouse Southside Flyers!

QSA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the various lands on which their members enjoy sport and especially their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members. QSA pay their respects to Elders past, present and emerging. QSA celebrate the diversity of Aboriginal peoples and their ongoing cultures and connections to the lands and waters of the country.
