QUEENS Park Rangers Football Club will be proud to show its support for the Football v Homophobia campaign, when the R’s host local side Brentford on Wednesday 17th February.
The fixture, which see’s current R’s boss Mark Warburton come up against his former employers, will be the club’s dedicated game, as we continue to fight for equality and diversity within football and society.
As mentioned earlier in the month, the R’s have joined forces with clubs from across the country, including next week’s opponents Brentford to help celebrate this inclusive month.
The Football v Homophobia campaign aims to reinforce the message that there is no place for homophobia, transphobia or biophobia in football and society as a whole.
QPR are an inclusive club dedicated to equality for everyone, no matter what their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Andy Evans, CEO at QPR in the Community Trust, said: We take great pride in the work we do to help eradicate all forms of discrimination from society and we are delighted to be supporting this year’s Football v Homophobia campaign.
“Queens Park Rangers is an inclusive football club and it is our job to ensure that people feel comfortable regardless of their race, religion, sexuality or gender.”
Football v Homophobia themselves are hosting a number of virtual events throughout the month, as they continue to fight for equality within sport.
The R’s themselves have a number of things lined up this month to show support to the campaign, so stay tuned to www.qpr.co.uk for more information.
