DAVID FLISHER SHARES HIS STORY AS AN LGBT+ FAN

26 February 2021

Blues supporting LGBT+ initiative this weekend

Town season ticket holder, David Flisher sat down with the Club to have an open and honest discussion about what it is like to be an LGBT+ football fan.

Blues are dedicating tomorrow's matchday against Doncaster Rovers to the Football v Homophobia campaign which wants football to take a clear stand against homophobia and transphobia so that everyone can enjoy the beautiful game and so that football leads the way in removing discrimination and prejudice based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Football v Homophobia’s month of action takes place every February, and this year the Club are working with members of LGBTQ+ supporters group, Rainbow Tractors to reinvigorate the group.

The Football v Homophobia initiative was formed by the Justin Campaign in 2010, a small voluntary run campaign launched in 2008 to demonstrate that 10 years after the tragic suicide of Justin Fashanu in 1998, homophobia was still hugely prevalent in both grassroots and professional football.
