Team Greenwich to get involved in Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign

We at Greenwich Students’ Union are a massive believer in the benefits of sport. But these benefits shouldn’t just be for a select few. Everyone, regardless of their differences, should be able to enjoy themselves when playing sport and shouldn’t worry about not being accepted because of who they are.

To show our ambition to ensure all our student groups at Greenwich are inclusive, we’re supporting StonewallUk’s #Rainbowlaces campaign. The idea is simple, our clubs will be wearing rainbow laces for the fixtures in the week commencing 23rd November as a sign of their support to show everyone that sport at Greenwich is sport for all.

 

Why the need for a Rainbow laces campaign?

43% of LGBT people think public sporting events aren’t a welcoming space for LGBT people.

11% of LGBT people have been discriminated against while exercising at a fitness club or taking part in group sport in the last year. 28 per cent of trans people have been discriminated against.

14% of LGBT pupils – including 29 per cent of trans pupils – are bullied during sports lessons.

 

Keep an eye on our Team's social media and our fixtures through the Team Greenwich Instagram account.
