Rainbow Laces

It’s down to all of us to be an active ally to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in sport.   

Sport has the power to bring us together. 

Every player, every athlete, every team is stronger when sport welcomes and supports everyone. 

It’s down to all of us to become an active ally to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people.

It’s about working together, whether that’s playing for fun, playing to win, or cheering on your favourite athletes or team. 

It’s about being a team mate and taking responsibility.  

It’s down to you to show your support for LGBT people. 

It’s down to you to watch your language, and challenge chants and insults about LGBT people.

And it’s down to you to report abuse, whether online, watching live sport or taking part. 

When we all play our part, we can make sport everyone’s game.
