Pride Month 2022

Berks & Bucks FA’s Reflections on Pride Month

The past couple of months have been massive for the LGBTQ+ community in Football, with Jake Daniels becoming the UK’s only current male professional footballer to come out publicly as a gay man (and the first since Justin Fashanu), and the launch of the LGBTQ+ Professionals in Football Collective.

Emma O’Hara, our Community & Inclusion Officer attended the launch of the LGBTQ+ Professionals in Football Collective and reflected on the event by saying, “The panellists were massively inspiring in sharing their stories and they really showed the need for such a visual and representative collective for the professional football game. 

“It was a great event for networking and seeing the impact that feeling included and welcome in the sporting environment can have on individuals.”
