Organised around the birthday of the late Justin Fashanu, the UK’s first openly gay male professional footballer, the Month of Action calls on football to take visible steps to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the game.

Tottenham Hotspur’s LGB&T supporters’ group, the Proud Lilywhites, was formed in 2014, holding regular dialogue with the Club in tackling discrimination and promoting equality.

FvH Campaign Director, Lou Englefield, said: “Tottenham Hotspur’s support for the campaign has a global impact. It shows how the support of big clubs can reach not only into their own communities, but can also send out a message of inclusion across the game and around the world.”
