I went on a Spanish Radio Show called ‘Partido a Partido’ on RadioSet to talk about Homophobia in Football.
I had just moved to Madrid to start a new job on Tele Cinco ( Chanel 5 in Spain ) called ‘Viva la Vida’ also a new show at the time.
I wore one of my Black Heart Label T-shirts from the brand I created in honour of my uncle Justin Fashanu in 2013. ( @bhlabel )
Through discussion and the brand I continue to fight against discrimination in football, as I believe the more we communicate the more we increase awareness in Sport.
In this interview I highlight the importance of a footballer currently playing to step up and be true to who they really are.
It takes a lot of courage to come out in football, but it is something which is needed and which sooner or later must happen.
Statistics reveal that one in 5 men are gay. So why is it that on a team of 11 there is not one single one who is openly gay??? Odd right….???
