Rainbow laces support

Gloucestershire FA are delighted to be supporting The Rainbow Laces campaign

We will show our support for LGBT+ equality and inclusivity in football in Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire FA are delighted to be supporting the #RainbowLaces campaign 2018.


The Rainbow Laces campaign is a way for everyone involved in sport to show their support for LGBT+ equality and inclusivity.


Gloucestershire FA staff, local leagues, clubs and officials will be wearing their laces with #PRIDE to show their support for LGBT people in sport.


From 17th November until 2nd December we will be supporting the campaign by running a series of Retweeting Competitions as well as encouraging all those who have received their #RainbowLaces to post photos and messages via all social media channels, this way helping to spread awareness and encourage our followers to join the movement.


On 28th November, officially wear your Rainbow Laces Day, County FA staff will be lacing up to raise awareness. Please tag @GlosFA and @StonewallUK in your messages of support and use the #RainbowLaces


Homophobia, biphobia and transphobia remain a problem at all levels of sport.


Through football you can show your support for LGBT fans and players on and off the pitch, challenge anti-LGBT language and work with us to make sport everyone's game.


Find out how you can get involved in the Rainbow Laces campaign and join #TEAMPRIDE to help raise awareness by visiting @StonewallUK or www.stonewall.org.uk
