Dorset County Football Association Supporting the Rainbow Laces Campaign
Wear your rainbow laces on 24th & 25th November
The Rainbow Laces campaign is a way for everyone involved in sport to show their support for LGBT equality and inclusivity. The FA will be supporting the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign in 2018 to promote inclusion in football and we are keen to support this message across Dorset. There are a number of weekends that leagues and clubs are being encouraged to support this by wearing Rainbow Laces for their games and in Dorset we are looking to promote this on the weekend of 24th and 25th November.
Stonewall has developed a range of measures to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in sport. The charity has developed a sports toolkit for grassroots and community sport teams to build awareness and understanding of the issues affecting LGBT people, and how they can help ensure all sports offer an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. Stonewall will work with all of the clubs involved in Rainbow Laces to support their activities.
If your league or club would like to support this campaign then please call Justine Mosley on 01202 688277 or email Justine.firstname.lastname@example.org before Thursday 18th October to be sure of receiving your rainbow laces.
