The Justin Campaign represented at Brighton Pride
The Justin Campaign, an initiative set up in memory of Justin Fashanu, took part in Brighton Pride to raise awareness around the issue of homophobia in football last Saturday (13 August).
An estimated 50,000 people attended the event, which was the first for 19 years in which attendees were required to purchase tickets in advance.
Wearing their pink jerseys, members of The Justin Campaign carried a “Tackling Biphobia, Transphobia and Homophobia in Football” banner through the streets of the city, and were joined by organisers of the Ford Pride football tournament, which took place in Brighton a week before, during the parade.
As well as participating in the walk, the Campaign also had an information stall on King’s Road, organised in conjunction with the Doctor Brighton’s street party.
