Derbyshire County FA are supporting the Football v Homophobia month of action which runs across the whole month of February. The launch event took place at Tottenham Hotspur F.C on 1st February and is the eight year that the month of action has taken place.
Football v Homophobia (FvH) exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football. As an international initiative FvH engages in campaigning, education, advice and guidance, research, policy consultation and capacity building to:
1. Make existing football structures safe, welcoming and inclusive for LGBTI people
2. Create opportunities and promote engagement of LGBTI people in football at all levels and in all forms
3. Improve the representation and visibility of LGBTI people throughout football
4. To realise the potential of football in society as a tool to create positive change
