  1. Had to reload this page several times to make sure I was not misreading.

    Wow.

    A premiership club is dramatically supporting LGBT people.

    Be interesting to see which players participate and what practical steps the club take to tackle homophobia – nonetheless, a very welcome public statement of support!

    1. That nice Stevie Gerrard roller-skating in tight-fitting silver shorts and little else. Cap that Everton!

      1. Yum

        Be nice if he was joined by Craig Bellamy, Joe Cole and Jamie Carragher too!

    2. Yes but have you noticed there was no mention of the premier league players taking part just liverpool ladies team and employees of liverpool football club

      1. Yes thats why I said it would be interesting to see which players participate when it happens.

  2. Can’t see Dalgliesh having been happy with this if he’d still been there.

    Still, good news.

  3. As a football fan this is exactly the kind of thing I’d love to see other football clubs doing. Would be nice to have a player or two turning up but this is a good start. Well done Liverpool Football Club

    This is great news and hopefully other sporting clubs will follow this example and reduce homophobia, in their sports. We will be there again, supporting our brothers and sisters, celebrating our love together.

  5. I may be a bit cynical here but wouldn’t it be better if members of the first team were present too?

    To me this only just appears to be a marketing ploy and a chance to make money from their stall in the market place?

    I realise it is a positive step but I would have preferred to have seen some of the over payed players giving something more back!

    1. I believe the sheer amount of security needed to protect the march group would at least double if there were any members of the premiership team there.

  6. Great to see support from Liverpool FC supporters too

    It might be a step forward if the first team were there too. I expect they will not be.

    A great start but does it really take the women and LGB teams to get the men involved?

    Mind you it seems the women and LGB teams could indeed teach the men teams around the country how to win!! lol

    Good start and a positive message.

  9. This is yet another Lgbt first for Liverpool amongst many others. Such a great day to be a scouser, search ‘Lgbt culture in Liverpool’ on wiki pedia for a full list of all the other Lgbt firsts that have taken place in this proud northern metropolis.

  10. This is a good news. Doubtless the players have been encouraged to attend. If they don’t it will look pretty homophobic to me.

  11. Football players are cowards, I doubt any of them will have the balls to take part.

    1. Classy

      See a step forward for support for the LGBT communities, and what do some LGBT people do – slam it, condemn it and criticise it – before it even has happened!

      When this is the reaction of some of our communities, is it any wonder that some people who are not LGBT are cautious about taking a step forward and being criticised (even if they are doing the right thing!).

    Well done, Liverpool FC. With them we will never walk alone!
