The Justin Campaign is taking a break over the 2013 season.
After an intensive 2011-2012 campaign, and a fabulously creative and effective 4 years of action, the Justin Campaign is taking a break over the 2013 season. However, don't worry! The fantastic volunteers who make up the Justin Campaign media team will still be posting information and comment via the blog, facebook page and twitter feed. In addition, the Justin Campaign's initiative Football v Homophobia will continue to carry the baton of making football inclusive for all. To find out more about Football v Homophobia and to get involved with the campaign, please visit the website. If you would like to get involved in the Justin Campaign and have ideas for new events, projects, campaigns or activism, then please get in contact via firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the Justin Campaign?
The Justin Campaign was founded to demonstrate that ten years after Justin Fashanu’s tragic suicide in 1998, homophobia is still hugely prevalent in both grassroots and professional football.
Along with raising awareness the campaign has a strong focus on Art, Events, Education and football. Through these four key initiatives and some forward thinking strategic work with other inclusive sporting organisations, The Justin Campaign seeks to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions that exist around LGB & T (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans) people and work towards a future where the visibility of LGB & T people in football is both accepted and celebrated.
There are a number of things you can do to support us. Play for our campaigning team, The Justin Fashanu All-Stars, become a volunteer or make a donation.
“Justin Fashanu forced the world of football to acknowledge that you can love men, whilst at the same time be a world-class footballer. His bravery has created inroads for our community in the football world and has inspired a generation of gay and bisexual men, who now believe that we to, can be part of the beautiful game.”
Jason Hall, Founding Director, The Justin Campaign
