CLUB: United proud to host official Rainbow Laces fixture

Now you can also help to raise awareness

25 November 2019

Carlisle United Football Club was proud to host its official Rainbow Laces fixture on Saturday for the visit of Cambridge United.

Whether we're cheering or competing, we are all at our best when we feel part of the team.

But 4 in 10 LGBT people don’t think sport is welcoming.

Sport has an amazing power to bring people together. Following and taking part can give us community, energy and a sense of belonging.

That’s why we all need to play our part to make sport everyone’s game.

When you step up and play your part, others will follow.

Challenge anti-LGBT language. Celebrate LGBT people in sport. Share your story.

Wear your Rainbow Laces and show you care.

Play your part, bring Rainbow Laces into your community and Come Out Active during this year’s campaign.

It’s as simple as this: do something active while wearing your rainbow laces, raise vital funds for Stonewall and tell everyone why you support LGBT equality in sport.

Whether on land, in the water, indoors or outside. Whether you walk, swim, cycle, do a class or get involved with your club or team – the choice is yours!

You can choose to go solo or get your community, colleagues and friends involved. However you do it, Come Out Active.

Come Out Active week is NOW – 23 to 30 November. You can join in the big moment or do your activity any time in November. If you want to make the most impact then we suggest holding your event on Rainbow Laces Day, Wednesday 27 November.
