LGBTQ+ Workshops Announced For Rainbow Laces

Taking place on 27th November and 5th December 2023

Lincolnshire FA are pleased to announce the next two LGBTQ+ workshops, focused on LGBTQ+ Inclusion in football, during the Rainbow Laces campaign.

The workshops are for anyone involved in football in Lincolnshire, with the first taking place on Monday 27th November from 6pm to 7:30pm. The second will be on Tuesday 5th December from 6pm to 7:30pm, and will be hosted as part of 'Allies United', run by Football v Homophobia.

Attendees only need to attend one of the workshops.

Since Rainbow Laces kicked off in 2013, over a million people have laced up in support of LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport, fitness and physical activity. But this must-win game isn’t over yet. Large parts of the LGBTQ+ community still can’t be their true selves whilst attending or participating in sporting events.

Lincolnshire FA's LGBTQ+ workshop is designed to improve your knowledge of the LGBTQ+ community, covering topics including: 

• What does LGBTQ+ mean?
• Why is LGBTQ+ Inclusion important?
• Discrimination
• What does an inclusive environment look like?
• How does this vary at different age groups?
• An introduction to the Lincolnshire FA LGBTQ+ Accreditation 

The workshop is around an hour and a half in length and will empower the attendees in being an ally for LGBTQ+ individuals and developing an inclusive club environment.

The workshop is also an essential criteria for clubs wishing to become an LGBTQ+ Inclusive Accredited Club.

Jordan Mason, Football Development Officer (Disability & Inclusion), said: "After the success of our LGBTQ+ Inclusive Accredited Club Programme and LGBTQ+ Inclusion workshops last season, it's great to see that this piece of work is continuing into 2023/24. This season, we're also partnering with Football v Homophobia to deliver one of their Allies United Workshops too, which is a great opportunity to take part in a workshop delivered by an industry-leading inclusion charity."
