MEET THE TEAM
Lou Englefield is a Director of Pride Sports and has been a leading voice on LGBTI inclusion in sport for over 10 years, working both in the UK and further afield. She has worked on the Football v Homophobia campaign since 2010. Lou is a terrible footballer, coached grassroots junior football for over ten years, and now just supports her team, Manchester City, mainly from the comfort of her sofa!
Keph Senett is a Canadian freelance writer and sports activist whose passions for travel and soccer have led her to play the beautiful game on four continents. She acts as Football v Homophobia’s Team Lead for the Americas, seeking to find ways to bring a message of inclusion and diversity to football (soccer) throughout Canada, the United States, and Central and South America. Her sports-based writing has appeared in publications including Sports Illustrated online, VICE Sport, BBC News, and Al Jazeera America. When not writing, she spends her free time trying to figure out how to qualify for a soccer squad in Asia, Australia, or Antarctica.
Annette Nelson has worked for more than thirty years in the education sector in the UK, for fifteen of these she was employed as Equality and Diversity Advisor for a local authority. Annette provides advice on FvH education and training initiatives and delivers education programmes on behalf of the campaign. Annette grew up minutes from Derby County's Baseball Ground and regularly attended home games with her brothers. She is still a keen supporter of her childhood club.
Scott is a Senior Lecturer in the Business School at Nottingham Trent University. He draws on interests in change management and diversity to lead on academic and research issues for FvH. Previously, he was Chair of the LGBT football club in Nottingham, and through this became involved with the work of FvH. Scott is a supporter of West Bromwich Albion, and still attempts an occasional game of 5-a-side.
Jen is an experienced freelance print and web designer who is lucky enough to combine work with her love of sport. As well as basketball, she also plays football and is often persuaded to don a FvH kit and represent the campaign (think James Milner but older and much less fit).
