Proud Lilywhites first international tour in Fiorentina

Our members went to the UEL away match to Fiorentina on February 26th and during the visit took the time to visit the Bologna Lesbian and Gay Centre, where they met members of Bugs Bologna, the LGBT football team. 

We were put in contact with Bugs by FARE, an umbrella organisation that brings together individuals, informal groups and organisations driven to combat inequality in football.  The two groups exchanged experiences, momentos and shared good practice and advice.  We were graciously hosted by Davide Palitta and Paolo Zagatti, the President of the club – seen below with Darryl.

In addition we were also introduced to members of the BogaSport A.S.D. ,  a multi-discipline LGBT sport society . Both groups are part of the Arcigay “Viva il Calcio” (long live football) initiative organised by Arcigay, the national LGBT organisation.

The meeting took place on the exact anniversary of the launch of the Proud Lilywhites and came at the end of the Football v Homophobia Month of Action.

Proud Lilywhites v Gay Gooners Pub Quiz – The Results!

More than 30 people packed the Beehive in Tottenham for the first of our FvH month of action events.  

In what is expected to be an annual fixture, the Proud Lilywhites routed the Gay Gooners 50-35 in our first head to head pub quiz.  Over eight rounds of questions including a difficult cryptic set, we battled hard to claim the first prize of the week as we build up to the 5-a-side on Tuesday and the Kick It Out Season of Action game on Saturday.

We were delighted to also welcome a teams of local players and the London Romans, our local LGBT football team.
