Newport County AFC support International Day Against Homophobia

17 May 2021

As a supporter-owned and community-based club, Newport County AFC has a wide fan base. We treat all our supporters equally, irrespective of race, faith, background, gender or sexuality.

We believe in equality for all and have a zero-tolerance approach to homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.

We are now working with our LGBT+ fans to create a new supporter group, County with Pride.

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOT) and we are marking it with a call for more LGBT+ fans to join this newly-formed group.

The group will officially be launched for the start of the 2021/22 season and will work collaboratively and in partnership with Newport County AFC to help create a safer space and club for all supporters.

County supporter Nate Thomas said: "As a member of the LGBQT+ community, I believe football should be a haven for everybody regardless of race, belief, sexuality or gender identity.

"I feel immensely proud to be a supporter of a football club that promotes inclusion and equality for all and that is why I have decided to get involved. We need more people to join us to help represent all aspects of the LGBT+ community so would encourage other to get involved".

If you would like more information on the group or wish to get involved with County with Pride, please contact our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Director Colin Faulkner on the secure email address equality@newport-county.co.uk
