The Justin Campaign said they were delighted to watch Mark Chapman’s documentary yesterday evening on footballs last taboo, homophobia.

The programme raised some very valid points around the support a professional player can expect on coming out.

You might think that a football player taking his own life because of the homophobic abuse he suffered in the industry might of encouraged the football authorities to up the ante’ on eradicating homophobia in football; but still, twelve years after Fashanu’s death the only publicly identifiable evidence that any work has been done on the issue is the recent, so called, anti-homophobia video commissioned by Kick It Out, the FA’s equality and inclusion campaign.

Sadly the video lacked any community consultation and as a result it’s content and overall message has been condemned by many gay activists.



The Justin Campaign would like to send thanks to Mark Chapman for fronting such a thought provoking piece that demonstrates the all to real consequences of homophobia in football and why, as a society it’s so important that we hold footballs governing body to account on their work around homophobia in the sport.
