Homophobia in Football



The FA’s Anti-Homophobia ad, courtesy of The Offside:

It’s raw, it’s in your face, it makes you uncomfortable, just like abuse makes you uncomfortable in a normal setting, and the point that what’s not acceptable outside a football ground shouldn’t be acceptable in it either is a fair point.

We were originally under the impression the the FA refused to show the video, but that’s incorrect, as Tom Dunmore of the Pitch Invasion kindly pointed out. The FA have the video hosted on their website (props to them for having the balls to put it up) although they did cancel the premier of the event. Read more here on PI.
