Homo- and transphobia, discrimination, and the pressure to hide oneself are the opposite of fair play. In both recreational and professional sport, we need a culture of respect.
With the social media campaign #SportPride2020, the Lesbian and Gay Association of Germany (LSVD), Football Fans against Homophobia (FFGH), the Queer Football Fan Clubs (QFF) and Football Supporters Europe (FSE) want to use Global Pride on 27/06/2020 to make lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual people (LGBTI+) visible in sport worldwide. And they want to stand up for a discrimination-free sport.
Whether sports association, sports club, athlete, professional, amateur, recreational athlete, or fan, whether LGBTI+ or not—everyone can participate.
The initiative is already supported by sports associations and clubs, including the German Football Association (DFB).
