The Proud Lilywhites, official LGBT fans’ group of Tottenham Hotspur, held a series of events last week in conjunction with our own Fans for Diversity campaign as part of LGBT History Month.

A week-long series of events, aimed at promoting tolerance within football and educating fans about homophobia, kicked off with an annual pub quiz, followed by a five-a-side match against the Gay Gooners – with the Lilywhites running out 7-1 winners. At the north London derby, the Proud Lilywhites opened a stall at the south west corner of White Hart Lane to hand out information to the public.

Speaking on behalf of Tottenham Hotspur FC, Donna Cullen said: “Tottenham is well known for its rich ethnic and cultural diversity; extending this welcome to LGBT supporters demonstrates that Spurs really is a place for everyone to enjoy football regardless of sexuality or gender identity.

“We are proud to work with our fellow supporters who stand with us to rid this hate from our national game.”
