  • Football's Fight for LGBTIQ+ Inclusion

    4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Join Fare to discuss what football is doing to promote LGBTIQ+ inclusion globally, and what more still needs to be done.

    The fight for LGBTIQ+ equality is a global phenomenon. As the world’s most popular sport, football has a clear role to play in achieving this. Yet with the recent Outsport European Survey finding that 82% of respondents had witnessed homo / transphobic language being used in sport within the last 12 months, it is clear that there is still a long way to go to ensure LGBTIQ+ people can take their place in sport, free from discrimination.

    So what exactly is being done to ensure this is achieved? Whose responsibility is it to monitor that homo and transphobic abuse does not feature in the beautiful game? And with recent examples of state-sponsored erosion of LGBTIQ+ rights, what more can football do to positively impact public opinion and policy?

    Join the Fare stage on 25th July to hear what football is doing and still needs to do in order to guarantee the sport really is for all.

  • Game On - Queer Disruptions in Sport

    5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    In recent years, LGBTIQ+ people in sport have become more visible yet so many still stay in the closet, especially in professional sport. Lack of awareness and understanding continues to exist in mainstream sport.

    Almost 90% of LGBTIQ+ people believe homophobia and transphobia is a problem in sport (Outsport, 2019)

    82% of LGBTIQ+ people have experienced or witnessed abuse in sport (Outsport, 2019)

    65% of home fans and 72% of away fans of league clubs don’t report homophobic and transphobic chanting (Football v Homophobia)

    Amateur LGBTIQ+ sports clubs exist around the world with a huge increase in the last 30 years. These groups provide a safe space for LGBTIQ+ athletes with diverse identities.

    The film portrays 5 protagonists from 4 different countries, each disrupting amateur sport with their gay, lesbian, trans and intersex identities. They talk candidly about their sports journeys, their individual experiences and their private life.

    Giving LGBTIQ+ athletes visibility helps to break down barriers of ignorance and discrimination. Sport has the capacity to be inclusive, overcome prejudice and to empower marginalised groups. Game on.

  • Psychological Impact of Homophobia in Sports

    5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    There is an increasing amount of research establishing the existence of homophobia in sports, but little research on the psychological effects of homophobia in sports.

Yet, many coaches, sports psychologists and even other athletes don’t understand how a homophobic culture can impact the performance of their athletes and thus, the team as a whole. In this webinar, we discuss how homophobia in sport is linked to mental health, which in turn drives athlete participation and performance.

    An all-day chillout space, where you can join Natalie Washington and a variety of guests for a chat, a drink & some gaming as we see whether our LGBTQI+ footballing legends can succeed in a game of Championship Manager, amongst other shenanigans.

The Football Pride Festival is an initiative of the Football v Homophobia Campaign.

On Saturday 25 July 2020 we aim to bring together LGBTIQ+ and ally football family, from around the world for an online day of queer football culture.

At a time when many are feeling isolated, not only from each other but also from their year-round passion, we aim to unite football in an online day of panel discussions, debates, entertainment and football fun.

We are excited to be working with a range of partners internationally to build a diverse and engaging programme for the day.

How It Will Work

We will have four virtual ‘stages’ on the day, as well as a family zone and a fringe programme. We will be allocating different sessions to these virtual spaces.

You can find the programme above, which is still being added to. As with Pride programmes in real life, participants will be able to choose events and build their own menu of activities throughout the day.

Activities will be delivered via a range of online platforms and will include, for example Zoom, Instagram TV, Facebook Live, Twitter, Twitch etc.

If you are interested in getting involved in the event, please contact us at info@pridesports.org.uk
