LGBT+ Initiatives at The FA

The FA are Stonewall Diversity Champion and PRIDE partner.

As a sport and industry, football continues to embrace the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) community and there is still more to do to stop these forms of discriminatory abuse.

Groups and individuals tackling homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the game engage regularly and established lobby groups like Stonewall, coupled with the emergence of a vibrant fans movement consisting of LGB&T groups linked to professional clubs, means there is more visibility around this area than ever before.

Campaigns designed to raise awareness of this issue have caught the public’s imagination in recent years. Football v Homophobia began in the UK before developing into an international initiative opposing homophobia at all levels from grassroots to professional clubs. Latterly, the Rainbow Laces campaign focused on promoting acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) footballers, with professional and non-league clubs donning rainbow coloured laces  

Martin Glenn, chief executive officer at The FA, has made his views on the importance of embracing this issue clear: “This is a time to acknowledge some of the good work taking place in this field by policy makers and campaigners alike. As both leader of The FA, and just as importantly as a fan, I’m proud to see the range of work being done to embrace people from right across the LGB&T community.”
