Therefore, it is especially nice that it’s a male team sport that goes first. The American Football Association (SAFF) in Sweden is the first to get LGBT certification, means a lot for the sport. It is important that especially children and young people are safe in sport and have the opportunity to develop as individuals and sports active, says Sofia B Karlsson, educator of RFSL, to the Radiosporten.

That it is my sport that takes the step is amazing, says Marcus Juhlin, who have come out as gay, said.
