Forest show awareness with Rainbow Laces   - 17 Dec 2014 - Women's Football NewsNottingham Forest LFC helped to raise awareness of homophobia in football in partnership with the University of Nottingham and Stonewall last Sunday. 
Claire Henson, a good friend of Forest Ladies, and Equality and Diversity Events Co-Ordinator at the University of Nottingham, has organised events that will run next year focusing on sexuality, gender, race and disability in sport. To launch the event series, The University of Nottingham presented fifty pairs of Rainbow Laces to Nottingham Forest Ladies Football Club at Sunday's game. The initiative is backed by Stonewall, the biggest charity in Europe campaigning for lesbian, gay and bisexual equality, and the Gay Football Supporters' Network, the national membership organisation of LGBT football fans, teams and supporters' groups.
Claire Henson adds: "NFLFC were a huge support to The University of Nottingham 2014 Diversity in Sport events, so I was delighted to be able to present them with the laces as part of the 2015 event series. The University of Nottingham values inclusivity for all and we are happy to support the Stonewall Rainbow Laces Campaign. "
Club Chairperson, PJ Andrews endorsed the initiative with NFLFC and said: "It can take time to change people's mind-set on many things and for different reasons for what you hope is for the better and greater good. Nottingham Forest Ladies gifts football to so many and has done over many, many years. Team Sport brings about its own diversities and understandings and if we can continue to promote an equal and welcome environment in Nottingham Forest Ladies football club, and on a wider scale, then we will do whatever we can to support that initiative."
