Football v Homophobia (FvH) exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football. As an international initiative FvH engages in campaigning, education, advice and guidance, research, policy consultation and capacity building.
February is the Football v Homophobia Month of Action, and it starts with the campaign asking supporters, clubs, players and the football authorities to focus their efforts on challenging homophobic attitudes and ensuring the game is open to all.
The month of action is a really good time for people to talk about the issues of LGBTQ inclusion in Football. It’s really important for LGBTQ fan groups to have a dialogue with the wider fan community and for those groups to be part of the wider fan movement.
We can never rest easy while homophobic and illegal songs are still being chanted in the stadiums. Football for everyone!!!
