Coming up on Thursday, February 27th is a great evening of discussion centred around LGBTQ+ inclusion within women’s football.
Football for All: Conversations around LGBTQ+ inclusion and women’s football at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green, is part of Football v Homophobia‘s Month of Action.
Ciara coaches for Goal Diggers FC, an inclusive club for women and non-binary people, plays for Clapton CFC and works as Practitioner for Football Beyond Borders. She has insights and experience as an LGBTQ+ footballer, from the pitch to the classroom.
