NBL has taken the “easy and convenient” first step for its inaugural Pride Round while being aware support was “not unanimous”, says UNSW Faculty of Law and Justice Professor Lucas Lixinski.

Mr Lixinski joined Englishheadline Australia to discuss the impact of several Cairns Taipans players being reportedly unwilling to wear the club’s Pride guernsey in the NBL’s first-ever Pride Round.

“They can encourage their athletes … which is what they are doing to support LGBTIQ+ communities,” Professor Lixinski said.

“But in my view, they cannot force athletes who oppose on the basis of their religious beliefs.”
