The Men in Black

Posted: March 1, 2012 in Football Campaigning, Republica Internationale FC

A very proud day for my club, Republica IFC, last Sunday. It was “Football versus Homophobia” week, supported by the F.A. and football leagues, but I doubt there were too many other teams in the Leeds Sunday leagues who made a stand against the prejudice and homophobic abuse which is still all too commonplace  throughout every level of football.

The following article from the Yorkshire Evening Post gets things a bit mixed up, as usual, because last Sunday’s match in this dashing black  & pink kit was just a normal league game.  The tournament that they refer to us organising was actually a year and a half ago, but we regularly represent the Justin (Fashanu) Campaign in other small-sided tournaments too.

      Thanks for the re-blog. I don’t think I’ve ever had a re-blog before. As you can see, I haven’t updated for a while or even checked this email account recently.
      So thanks to you and some others for prompting all the updates which will follow in the next couple of days.

      Loving your work by the way,

      Nigel
