Reds Support Rainbow Laces Campaign

Reds Support Rainbow Laces Campaign

Wednesday Nov 21, 2018

 

ATFC, alongside the Derbyshire FA; are proud to be helping support Stonewall UK's nationwide Rainbow Laces campaign.

The Rainbow Laces campaign is a way for everyone involved in sport to show their support for LGBT equality and inclusivity.

The FA will be supporting the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign to promote inclusion in football and we are keen to support this message across Derbyshire.

The campaign is running between Saturday 17th November and Sunday 2nd December.

Stonewall (https://www.stonewall.org.uk/our-work/campaigns/rainbow-laces) has developed a range of measures to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in sport. The charity has issued a sports toolkit for grassroots and community sport teams to build awareness and understanding of the issues affecting LGBT people, and how they can help ensure all sports offer an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. 

Stonewall's Message:

It’s down to all of us to be an active ally to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in sport.

Sport has the power to bring us together.

Every player, every athlete, every team is stronger when sport welcomes and supports everyone.

It’s down to all of us to become an active ally to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people.

It’s about working together, whether that’s playing for fun, playing to win, or cheering on your favourite athletes or team.

It’s about being a team mate and taking responsibility.

It’s down to you to show your support for LGBT people.

It’s down to you to watch your language, and challenge chants and insults about LGBT people.

And it’s down to you to report abuse, whether online, watching live sport or taking part.

When we all play our part, we can make sport everyone’s game.
