A number of JBG? resources were handed out at ’the Belles’ home game v Reading WFC to the attending fans and prior to the kick off player wore JBG? t-shirts during the warm up to help raise awareness for our campaign work.
The Belles have an ‘out and proud’ player in goalkeeper Nicola Hobbs who is also a JBG? patron and the club are very proud to show visible support to an LGBTI community.
The club was originally formed as the Belle Vue Belles in 1969 and are one of the most decorated women’s clubs in the English history of the game, they had this to say about the partnership; “ JBG? is an incredibly important organisation which aims to tackle discrimination, particularly with regard to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI) issues within sport.”
