Club supports football v homophobia month of action

Posted on 9 February 2016  - 16:30

During February the Club is supporting Football v Homophobia (FvH) Month of Action, a campaign that aims to tackle homophobic discrimination in football.

Our fixture against Manchester City this weekend has been dedicated to supporting FvH and will see both teams warm-up in campaign t-shirts to promote equality in football.

FvH was launched in 2010 to bring fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and Football Authorities to promote a safe and inclusive football environment for everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

It is two years since the Proud Lilywhites became Tottenham Hotspur’s first official LGBT supporters group, representing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fanbase, holding regular consultation and events with the Club.

As part of FvH Month of Action 2016, Proud Lilywhites Co-Chairs, Chris Paouros and Simon Gray, delivered a homophobia awareness workshop with our matchday stewards, sharing experiences and discussing best practice in tackling homophobic abuse at stadia.

Proud Lilywhites will hold a similar workshop with the Spurs Ladies team before the month culminates in a Football For Diversity five-a-side tournament with representatives from other London clubs.
