The Justin Campaign is running an international day opposing homophobia in football.
The Justin Campaign was founded to demonstrate that ten years after Justin Fashanu’s tragic suicide in 1998, homophobia is still hugely prevalent in the world of professional football.
The Justin Campaign seeks to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions that exist around gay and bisexual men and women in football and work towards a future where the visibility of gay and bisexual men in professional football are both accepted and celebrated.
Homophobia v Football on 19th February will be the second international day opposing homophobia in football and will provided an opportunity for individuals, communities and teams to communicate their disapproval of homophobia in football and celebrate football’s diverse following.
