Club supports Football v Homophobia Month of Action

Fri 26 February 2021, 15:12|Tottenham Hotspur

The Club is proudly supporting Football v Homophobia (FvH) Month of Action, a campaign that aims to tackle homophobic discrimination in football, at this weekend’s men's and women's fixtures against Burnley and Everton.

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

Club supports Football v Homophobia Month of Action

• Club is dedicating Burnley and Everton fixtures to the Football v Homophobia campaign.
• The Month of Action aims to tackle homophobic discrimination in football.
• The Club was honoured with the Professional Game Award at the first ever Football v Homophobia Awards last year.
• Proud Lilywhites, the Club’s official LGBTQ+ Supporters’ group, celebrates its seventh birthday this weekend.

The Month of Action calls on football to take visible steps to tackle homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in the game.

In our continued support of FvH, we are promoting the campaign across our website, men's and women's social media channels, matchday programmes, in-stadia signage and during N17 Live in the build-up to the Burnley match.

Last year, the Club was honoured with the Professional Game Award at the first ever Football v Homophobia Awards. The Club was recognised for showing dedication to improving the landscape of football for LGBTQ+ people.

The Club continues to work closely with Proud Lilywhites, its official LGBTQ+ Supporters’ group, to combat issues relating to homophobia within the game and create a safe and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans.

Proud Lilywhites is one of the founding members of the Pride in Football LGBTQ+ fan group alliance and regularly runs training sessions and educational workshops for our stewards, staff and local school students, as well as supporting national campaigns such as Kick it Out and Fans for Diversity.

Proud Lilywhites celebrates its seventh birthday this weekend and to help commemorate the occasion, both teams are showing their support.

Spurs Women forward Gemma Davison filmed a special video message ahead of the women's match at home to Everton on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

Meanwhile, members from around the world will take part in a virtual event which will include a Q&A with Club legend Gary Mabbutt ahead of the men's match.

Chris Paouros, Co-Chair of Proud Lilywhites, said: “From seven of us meeting at White Hart Lane in February, 2014, to a vibrant, thriving global membership of more than 700 in 2021, the Proud Lilywhites have blazed a trial in the UK LGTBQ+ football fan group movement. We are proud of the small part we play in ensuring that our great football Club is diverse, inclusive and that sexual orientation and gender identity are celebrated. We’re excited to be turning seven and can’t wait to celebrate with fans from all seven continents.”
