The Football v Homophobia Campaign will be joined by FARE, Europe’s anti-discrimination campaign for football, to deliver a football conference for fans on tackling homophobia and transphobia in football. The conference is being held in Manchester, UK on 17 August 2013.
If you’re in the UK, this is a terrific opportunity for supporters to connect with others who want to take real action about homophobia in soccer.
Registration for the conference and applications for bursaries can be found at http://fansconference.eventbrite.co.uk.
About Football v Homophobia (from their website):
FvH is an international initiative opposing homophobia in football. In England it is the FA’s endorsed campaign to tackle homophobia and prejudice against lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in grassroots football.
FvH works year-round to enable people to take action against prejudice and discrimination based on sexuality or gender identity in football, and to celebrate and welcome diversity.
FvH provides support, communication materials, education and training to enable anyone – including fans, LGBT communities, grassroots teams, professional football clubs and football authorities – to communicate and promote the message that football is for everyone. FvH culminates with a month of action in February where there is an international show of unity to stand up against homophobia and prejudice against LGBT people in football.
