Arseblog Reports On Arsenal’s LGBT supporters club Gay Gooners celebrate their 5th anniversary...

Great piece by Tim Stillman of Arseblog on the Gay Gooners.

Oh, did I mention I'm one of the interviewees! :-)

"This month, Arsenal’s LGBT supporters club Gay Gooners celebrate their 5th anniversary. The first LGBT supporters club in English football, they arranged a 5 a side tournament with other supporters groups before the Arsenal v Everton match recently, designated as ‘Arsenal For Everyone’ match day. The tournament marked the 5th anniversary of their creation and also falls during LGBT History Month.

Tim Stillman went across to the Arsenal Hub to talk to the Gay Gooners about their inception, their purpose, their successes and the challenges to come in fully removing the stigma around homosexuality in football- for fans as well as players."
