Once again, we are proud to be supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign, and we encourage all our clubs to join us in taking part.
Kicking off this weekend, and running until December 10 2023, this year marks 10 years since the campaigns inception, and in that time over a million people have laced up to show that football is truly a game for everyone.
But this must win game isn’t over yet.
Large parts of the LGBTQ+ community still can’t be their true selves whilst attending or participating in sporting events.
And in 2023, that just simply isn’t acceptable.
So, while we should be proud of what’s been done so far, this is no time to take our eye off the ball, and in this tenth year we all have to do one important thing…
Keep. It. Up.
Keep up raising awareness. Keep up supporting each other. Keep up pushing to make sure sport is for everyone.
Lacing up is still making a difference but only if we keep doing it and keeping making a noise about it!
In celebration of the campaign, we’re running our own Rainbow Laces Webinar, in conjunction with Allies United, on how to create LGBTQ+ inclusive spaces.
How can you get involved?
If your club would like to get involved, you can purchase Rainbow Laces from Stonewall UK.
And don't forget to use social media to showcase your club during the campaign by using the hashtag #RainbowLaces
