LFC Foundation and Football v Homophobia teamed up to deliver a series of educational workshops to local youngsters last week.

Football v Homophobia is an international initiative, launched in 2010, which aims to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity within all levels of football.

LFC Foundation has supported the initiative for a number of years through its Premier League Primary Stars programme.

And 136 pupils from four Liverpool primary schools took part in the latest interactive sessions at the LFC Foundation Learning Space at Anfield, which focused on LGBTQ awareness and education.

LFC Foundation project lead David McParland said: “It’s really important that our young people have the knowledge, skills and understanding to contribute positively to all communities.

“Football v Homophobia has pioneered a positive, inclusive and fun approach to LGBTQ awareness and education, and has carried out hugely impactful work around all forms of anti-discrimination within the game over the last decade.

“These sessions are incredibly insightful and empowering for our young people, and we look forward to continuing to work with Football v Homophobia and the local community on these important issues going forward.”
