“That rush, and the sights and the sounds and the smells… I want everyone to experience that.” - @Arsenal is for Everyone ✊ 🌈 @GayGooners My experience -->


I’m in this Arsenal video. I hope you like it. 😉

“That rush, and the sights and the sounds and the smells… I want everyone to experience that.”

Last Saturday Arsenal FC handed their platform over to GayGooners to share what belonging to Arsenal means to us 🏳️‍🌈. And I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute.
 
And the video they made had a powerful impact yesterday for me personally. Before kick off against Brentford people all around me in the stadium came up to me and shook my hand and thanked me. They had seen the video online already.
 
Then at half time in the bar area a cheer went up when the video was shown on all the screens. People looked, laughed, pointed, nodded, and gave the thumbs up. Six or seven people came up to me to talk about it and shake my hand.
 
Back in the stadium seats for the second half more people came over and shook my hand. It had been shown in the big screen too. Lovely comments, some jokes, “I’m not gay but proud of you mate”
Then in the pub afterwards three people asked for photos. Another guy came up and chatted to me about GayGooners.
 
It was all so overwhelmingly positive I became quite emotional.  

Arsenal is for everyone ✊ 🌈
