Month of Action continues at the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
Proud Lilywhites engages students from the Club’s Community Foundation in a session to support the Football v Homophobia month of action.
With Olympian Helen Richardson-Walsh, our co-Chair Darryl led a class to students on the Sports Development course during their regular equalities module.
The aim of the day was to raise awareness about the roots of homophobia and how to deal with it in a sports setting.
Allison Sharman from the Community Foundation told Proud Lilywhites that “the presentation ensured that the learners acquired information about homophobia, its roots and how we might work towards effecting change but also gave them the opportunity to engage in open and honest discussions about their existing thoughts and views.”
Darryl Telles, also commented that “It was great to talk to the students and share our experience and understanding of homophobia. I feel assured that the upcoming generation of sports coaches will appreciate the need for LGBT equality.”
