Royals support Rainbow Laces campaign

23 November 2016

Reading FC support Stonewall's LGBT initiative...

Reading Football Club have joined a GB-wide campaign to show that lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people are welcome at every level of sport.

Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign will see thousands of people, from fans to players, put on Rainbow Laces on the 26th and 27th of November to show that sport is everyone's game and to ensure LGBT people feel welcome and included.

We know most fans welcome and accept LGBT people in sport. However, recent research shows that half of all fans have heard offensive remarks about lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in the last five years.

We can’t let the minority of fans spoil the game and make LGBT fans feel unwelcome watching or playing football.

By supporting Rainbow Laces we are stepping up to show that offensive chants, language and behaviour have no place in our game.

Join us and Stonewall to make sport everyone’s game, click here for more information.
