LGBT+ EQUALITY INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY IN SPORTS Q&A FOR UNION MEMBERS

Union Equality in sport

During the Covid-19 lockdown our founder Lindsay England (GMB N&I equality rep) took part in a Q&A for The Football Collective.

FBC Session: Chris Gibbons, Lindsay England and Rory Magrath

LGBT+ equality inclusion & diversity in sports Q&A.

How do we make our sports teams and clubs more inclusive and welcoming?

Pride is a time for protest, education, advocating and celebrating for LGBT+ peoples lives and history. We would love more trade union members and fellow co-workers to be involved in local and national pride events as allies.

Since the beginning of June we have had an increasing number of GMB union members contacting us, who are very anxious and concerned over what appears to be ever increasing numbers of customers in stores.
