Because football is a game for everyone, we will be supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow laces campaign in our Premier League match at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on 8th December.
The game against Wolves will see a host of activities take place to recognise the significant place the LGBT community has in our sport.
Rose Read, head of people and culture at the club said, “We are pleased to be a part of the wider football communities’ efforts to make football accessible and welcoming to everyone. We ask that all fans support our local and wider LGBT communities’ in football.”
Paul Callander, finance officer, and project co-ordinator for Albion’s presence at Brighton and Hove Pride, added, “We are proud to be able to actively show the wider football community the inclusive and welcoming club that we are. Few clubs in Europe are more pro-active in welcoming all members of the LGBT community to football than Brighton & Hove Albion”.
Brighton & Hove Albion staff and supporters took to the streets of the city for Brighton and Hove Pride 2019 in August this year, and have partnered with the biggest Pride event in the UK for the past two years.
Tickets are still available for the game at tickets.BrightonAndHoveAlbion.com.
The stadium superstore will have a host of Pride merchandise on sale in the week leading up to the match.
Please show your support for the match as we work to make football everyone’s game.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
