Tackling Homophobia in Football toolkitThe TUC works with allies to challenge homophobia and transphobia in football. To mark LGBT History Month, February 2016, the TUC and footballers’ union the PFA have launched a new campaign toolkit to help trade unionists and others organise on the ground

The TUC is encouraging trade unions to collectively challenge the prejudice faced by many LGBT people in football and wider sport. As with many trade union campaigns we want to encourage local
victories and engagement with local clubs, supporters groups and county football associations which are vital to contribute towards removing the barriers faced by many in society.

Whilst many amongst us are football supporters; we are not assuming everyone is and those that are may not understand the structures in the game that are needed to ensure positive and collective campaigning/
action. This template will outline to everyone basic principles related to protocol to help effective campaigning.

We recommend that this initiative is primarily designed for use by trade union groups and not individuals. If any individual wishes to engage with a club we recommend approaching supporters groups, some of whom have specific LGBT sections, or if not, can look to create one specifically.
