Stonewall have recently relaunched their LGBT+ equality Rainbow Laces campaign, with the new winter season starting (football, rugby, hockey, etc.), and anyone keen to support them can sign a petition on their site as well as purchasing some very snazzy laces to wear on the playing fields.
Anyone who claims racism or LGBT+ abuse is no longer a part of modern sport is being completely naive. My previous posts have highlighted a number of these issues in just my own experience of sport in a relatively progressive, liberal part of the world, and I have plenty more to share. This is definitely one of the most crucial battlefields on which these issues are being fought on a daily basis.
By supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign, you can show support to and help with normalisation on a daily basis among other LGBT+ players, audience members and officials. Not only this, but the money raised from these goes towards helping fund Stonewall’s work in the community.
