Tackling homophobia in football

Tackling Homophobia in Football toolkit

The TUC is encouraging trade unions to collectively challenge the prejudice faced by many LGBT people in football and wider sport. As with many trade union campaigns we want to encourage local
victories and engagement with local clubs, supporters groups and county football associations which are vital to contribute towards removing the barriers faced by many in society.

Whilst many amongst us are football supporters; we are not assuming everyone is and those that are may not understand the structures in the game that are needed to ensure positive and collective campaigning/
action. This template will outline to everyone basic principles related to protocol to help effective campaigning.

We recommend that this initiative is primarily designed for use by trade union groups and not individuals. If any individual wishes to engage with a club we recommend approaching supporters groups, some of whom have specific LGBT sections, or if not, can look to create one specifically.
