Is football inclusive of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer fans? players? or staff?
In this event for LGBT+ History Month, representatives from the Liverpool Football Club (LFC) fans and supporters groups will discuss and debate the development of LGBT+ fans and Kop Outs (the LGBT+ Supporters Group of LFC) with a focus on our allies.
A wide range of topics will be covered, touching on the changing attitudes of football to LGBT+ people, how inclusive it is now, or could be, and how football, and LFC in particular stand up for its LGBT+ employees and fans.
