"LGBT people. Footie fans. Supporters supporting each other. Having fun. Not just talking the talk but walking the walk.Sometimes the best way to way to walk is to simply put your best foot forward" @GayGooners

We Gay Gooners had a memorable away trip to Blackpool to watch the mighty Arsenal take on the slightly less-mighty Blackpool this weekend just gone in the FA Cup third round. It was a weekend to remember - and not just for the Blackpool 0-3 Arsenal score line.

We played crazy golf in the dark, danced and drank in a few gay bars (more on that later), and frequented enough JD Wetherspoon pubs to make you think they might be going out of fashion.

And although we had fun at the game together, had lots of laughs hanging out together, spent lots of bonding together, we also got to speak to many other people too. People not in our group.

Gay people, straight people, just people. We talked about the work we do at Gay Gooners - our aims, our goals, and philosophy. And I think created a lot of allies as a result.

They got to see us in our natural element. LGBT people. Footie fans. Supporters supporting each other. Having fun. Not just talking the talk but walking the walk.

And sometimes the best way to walk is to simply put your best foot forward.
