    Good for Paul Elliott for speaking out. It’s a shame that he is working in conjunction with the Equality and Human Rights Commission on this campaign. The EHRC cannot will be suspected of not being seriously opposed to stamping out homophobia in football when one of their commissioners Joel Edwards is a homophobic christian facist.

  2. So what is new here then. It is obvious for some of them that they are gay, and people around them know about it.

    Simon, yes…that is certainly a dilemma for the EHRC and I don’t think its going to have any impact of influence in promoting support of of LGB people in football, or any other sort for that matter. Peter Tatchell is right…..straight players are the key to stamping out homophobia more than anything the EHRC can do.
