Football v Homophobia Awareness
At Saturday's game Stevenage Football Club is showing its support for the Football v Homophobia campaign in partnership with Hertfordshire Constabulary & Hertfordshire FA. Football v Homophobia (FvH) takes place year round and the campaign has its Month of Action in February. It is an international campaign to tackle homophobia and prejudice against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) people in football. The aim of FvH is to make football safe and welcoming for everyone. Stevenage players will be warming up in special awareness t-shirts and players, if they wish, will be wearing rainbow laces.
Throughout Football v Homophobia month and beyond, please help Stevenage Football Club by standing up to prejudice and discrimination against LGBT people in the game. Together we can make football a welcoming place for everyone. If you witness any behaviour during a game, like anti-gay chanting and hateful or prejudiced language, speak to a nearby steward, the police, a club official or contact Kick It Out via the reporting line - 0800 169 9414 – or the Kick It Out app www.kickitout.org/get-involved/report-it Remember, doing nothing only allows discrimination to get worse!
