Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion organisation, recently launched resources around tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic behaviour at football stadiums.

These have been aimed at the professional game but the core messages around identifying this type of behaviour are applicable across the game.

The resources form part of Kick It Out’s ‘Call Full Time On Hate’ initiative for the 2016-17 season, which is urging the collective force of football to encourage inclusion and deter hate from the game. Earlier this season all County FAs received resources around #CallFullTimeOnHate 

A short film raising awareness of LGB&T inclusion in the game has been created in partnership with Doodle Films. The film follows five individuals from the LGB&T community as they reflect on the impact of HBT behaviour on their lives and the importance of reporting discrimination in football.

A comprehensive booklet and small pocket guide have also been designed to assist stewards and officials in their understanding of HBT discrimination and how to effectively challenge this behaviour.  

‘Tackling Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic Behaviour at Football Stadia’ is a 12-page booklet which has been produced with support from Just A Ball Game? and Inside Inclusion. The booklet includes information on what HBT discrimination is and the role stewards and officials can play in reporting and challenging this behaviour.

Ten key steps to tackling HBT discrimination have been included in the small pocket guide accompanying the booklet. These are available digitally via the links below.
