(UK) Hyde FC back LGB&T History Month

Monday 4 Feb 2013

Blue Square Bet Premier side Hyde FC have issued a statement to show their support for this year’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) History Month.

The statement reads: “Hyde FC were the first senior sports organisation to sign up for Just a Ball Game? (JBG?), the anti-homophobia campaign, and to showcase the 'Time For Change-Now!' exhibition as part of the 'Think Before You Chant!' campaign, amongst numerous events held in conjunction with JBG?”

Hyde have been championing diversity and equality around LGB&T issues and raising awareness to challenge homophobia in the game for the past 18 months since teaming up with JBG? on a number of initiatives.

The club also attended a reception hosted by JBG? at the National Football Museum yesterday (4 February) to officially launch the temporary exhibition ‘TIME FOR CHANGE - NOW!’.
