Sports teams across the country are taking part in Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign

More than half of supporters want to tackle anti-LGBT language at sporting events, but only a quarter have the confidence to do so.

Charity Stonewall published the research to coincide with this year’s Rainbow Laces campaign, where professional and amateur players from a range of sports will show their support for the LGBT community.

The survey of more than 1,000 adults concluded there was a group of “hesitant allies” who want to make sport more inclusive but lack the confidence or understanding of how to achieve this.
