New video from Kick it Out

Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion organisation, has partnered with the Home Office and True Vision to release a series of informative and engaging resources that raise awareness of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) discrimination within football stadia.

Forming part of Kick It Out’s ‘Call Full Time On Hate’ initiative for the 2016-17 season, which is urging the collective force of football to encourage inclusion and deter hate from the game, the resources have been launched on the same day (22 March) as the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) host a roundtable meeting on homophobia in sport.

A short film raising awareness of LGB&T inclusion in the game has been created in partnership with Doodle Films.

The film follows five individuals from the LGB&T community as they reflect on the impact of HBT behaviour on their lives and the importance of reporting discrimination in football.
