During the month of August, LGBTQ+ Super Sixes brought together 100+ members of the LGBTQ+ Community in Brighton.
Working in partnership with Albion in the Community and Brighton & Hove City Council, together we have not only provided playing opportunities, but we also brought people together, like never before.
The event ran once a week on a Thursday in August and was a Gender Diverse Recreational 6-a-side Festival. Thanks to a new pilot that The FA have sanctioned, we were able to organise an event that was open to all groups from LGBTQ+, transgender, non-binary and intersex players, plus allies.
On the final Thursday of the month the participants were joined by Brighton & Hove Albion Women’s stars, Fliss Gibbons and Kayleigh Green. Both players were a welcome addition to the event and spent their time speaking with the participants and supported them during their games.
Since the event, 50 participants were welcomed as guests to the Amex to watch the Brighton & Hove Albion Women vs. West Ham United Women.
