Top players urged to wear rainbow laces in anti-homophobia campaign

Professional footballers in England and Scotland have been asked to back a campaign addressing homophobia in the game by wearing rainbow laces in their boots next weekend.

Sets of laces have been sent to all Premier League and Football League clubs, plus the 42 teams in the Scottish Professional Football League, by the gay rights charity Stonewall. The Right Behind Gay Footballers campaign is focused on changing attitudes in football rather than urging players to come out and wants players to wear the laces in games on 21 and 22 September.

QPR’s Joey Barton tweeted his support for the campaign, writing: “Show that people’s sexuality shouldn’t be an issue. Join the rainbow laces movement.”
