LUL Backs the Paddy Power and Stonewall Rainbow Laces Campaign

This weekend LUL teams will join the Paddy Power and Stonewall ¬†‘Right Behind Gay Footballers’ campaign that’s sweeping the nation. Rainbow coloured boot laces are being sent to teams to wear during their fixtures on Sunday.
At the time of writing players including Joey Barton and teams including Everton, QPR and Leyton Orient were participating, with Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal still in discussions.
The impact of this national campaign remains to be seen, but social media is brimming right now with talk about #RBGF including Mr. Stephen Fry and his 6.1 million Twitter followers. ¬†Just as significantly clubs around the country are being forced to decide if they’ll participate or not, furthering internal discussion about homophobia in football.
For more on the campaign read the article from the cover of Tuesday’s Metro newspaper: http://metro.co.uk/2013/09/16/joey-bartons-aiming-to-put-a-boot-into-footballs-homophobia-4031976/
