Lace Up to #KeepItUp in 2023

Rainbow Laces returns with a brand-new way for you to get involved and pledge your support for LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport.
Over the last ten years, the RAINBOW LACES campaign has come so far. Now, it’s time to Lace Up to #KeepItUp by joining the campaign from 25th November to 10th December 2023!

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. And in 2023, that just blows our minds.  

So while we should be proud of what’s been achieved so far, this is no time to take our eye off the ball. In the tenth year, we have to do one important thing… Keep it up!


Our limited number of free Rainbow Laces have already been snapped up this year, but don't worry! If you weren't successful in your application, you can still get your hands on a pair or two by ordering direct from the Stonewall shop:

To celebrate 10 years of sport inclusion, Stonewall have launched the #KeepItUp challenge. In the spirit of the campaign why not challenge yourself to do 10 keepy-ups, or see how many you can do in 10 seconds, or 100 seconds?

Here at Berks & Bucks FA HQ, members of the team laced-up to keep it up for Stonewall UK, attempting as many keepy-ups as possible in 10 seconds - check out how they got on below!

Whatever you choose to do to pledge your support to #KeepItUp for LGBTQ+ inclusion, we'd love to see, share and celebrate right along with you - so don't forget to share your efforts on social media. Tag/mention us in your posts @berksandbucksfa and use the hashtags #RainbowLaces, #KeepItUp & #BerksandBucksFA.

Thank you for showing your support for LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport.
