Bristol Flyers Support Stonewall's Rainbow Laces Campaign

Bristol Flyers have joined a GB-wide campaign to show that lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people are welcome at every level of sport. 

Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign will see thousands of people put on Rainbow Laces this weekend, to show that sport is everyone's game and to ensure LGBT people feel welcome and included.

Bristol Flyers are one of dozens of professional sports clubs backing the campaign, which has been endorsed by Premiership Rugby, the Premier League, the English Football League and the Football Association.

The players will be lacing up in rainbow colours for Friday’s clash away to Leicester Riders and Saturday’s game against Newcastle Eagles at the SGS WISE Arena (7.30pm).

We know most fans welcome and accept LGBT people in sport. However, recent research shows that half of all fans have heard offensive remarks about lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in the last five years. 

Join us and Stonewall to make sport everyone’s game.
