As Football v Homophobia (FvH) recognises a ‘Month of Action’, Hampshire FA reiterates our support of the initiative and encourages everyone to get involved and show your support!
Football v Homophobia is an international initiative that exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football. Discrimination, in any form, has no place in football, or any other aspect of life.
As February is the Football v Homophobia ‘Month of Action’, why not get involved and help take a stand against homophobia.
The Football v Homophobia website has ideas for anyone and everyone to get involved so that players, clubs, fans, leagues, county FAs and all alike can make a united stand.
See the FvH website: www.footballvhomophobia.com/
On top of this, there are a number of online events organised. These include stay-at-home exercise sessions, panel discussions and webinars. Click the link below to see all planned events and how you can join:
Please Note: Some events have a cost involved.
“If you feel confident to challenge comments or behaviour yourself, then standing up to homophobia can help make football welcoming to everyone. If you don’t feel confident or safe at a game or in any football environment, you can take action by making a report to Kick It Out. All the information you need can be found here http://www.kickitout.org/get-involved/report-it/
Remember, doing nothing only lets discrimination and prejudice grow!” – Football v Homophobia
