Dundee Football Club is delighted to be showing our support for lesbian, gay, bi and trans players and fans by taking part in the Rainbow Laces campaign at our Ladbrokes Championship match against Queen of the South this weekend.
Rainbow Laces is Stonewall Scotland’s campaign to change attitudes in sport and make sure that LGBT people are welcomed and accepted at all levels of the game. Sadly, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people have a poor experience in sport and have experienced discrimination because of who they are. Research shows that almost half of LGBT people think that public sporting events, such as football matches, aren’t a welcoming space for them.
We can only stop homophobic, biphobic and transphobic behaviour and language from happening in football by showing that it is not acceptable, at every level of the game. We are dedicated to eradicating any forms of homophobic, biphobic or transphobic behaviour and making sure Dundee Football Club is a place where LGBT fans can be safe and accepted. We need you to stand with us as allies to LGBT people.
