#BEYOURSELF

WONDERKID is a film by Rhys Chapman, which tackles one of football's biggest issues - homophobia. Starring Chris Mason and featuring Sky Sports' Martin Tyler, Alan Smith and Geoff Shreeves, the film depicts the inner turmoil of a gay professional footballer. WONDERKID launched at the 2016 Raindance Film Festival, has been broadcast on Sky Sports 1 HD and is now available online for FREE.

DID YOU KNOW?*

  • 72% of football fans say they have heard homophobic abuse while watching live sports in the past five years.

  • Nearly two thirds of people say more should be done to make LGBT people feel accepted in sport.

  • Nearly 90% of supporters say they would be either 'proud' or 'neutral' if their favourite player came out as gay.

Food for thought

  • In 2018, Russia hosts the FIFA World Cup Finals. It is illegal in Russia to promote or engage in 'propaganda' relating to LGBT relationships.

  • In 2022, Qatar hosts the FIFA World Cup Finals. Qatar is one of 10 countries in the world where being gay is illegal and punishable by death.

Support Our Friends

Kick It Out

Kick It Out's educational programmes and work with the footballing authorities have been hugely important in changing attitudes in the game. Kick It Out have played an integral role in making this film possible and have made so much progress in the game with racism and now all forms of descrimination. We cannot recommend this charity enough.

Stonewall

Co-founded by our friend Ian McKellen, Stonewall has been one of the most important LGBT charities of all time. The 2016 Rainbow Laces campaign has been the most influential thing we have seen to date in uniting everyone in the game and bringing this issue to the masses. Check out the Stonewall website to see all the other great work they do.

Football V Homophobia

The FvH month of action is a campaign we really admire and have enjoyed watching it grow in recent years. The campaign has done great things for LGBT inclusion, working with professional clubs, LGBT fan groups and grassroots football. This year's month of action was the best one yet. Check out the Football V Homophobia website to see how you can get involved.
