February is “Football v Homophobia” (FvH) month and Bristol Rovers Football Club is proud to support this campaign.
FvH is an international initiative uniting fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and the Football Authorities in opposing homophobia and prejudice against LGB&T (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans) people in football.
FvH is endorsed and supported by The FA, The Football League and the LMA.
Year round, FvH enables people to take action against prejudice and discrimination based on sexuality or gender identity in football, and to celebrate and welcome diversity in the game. This culminates in an international show of support in February to raise awareness of the issue and to showcase new and existing work.
Homophobia, prejudice and discrimination against LGB&T people in football is unacceptable and we at Bristol Rovers are committed to creating safe and inclusive football environments for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Together with FvH we will work to improve football for our LGB&T supporters, players and fans and to protect the right of everyone to participate.
