EGLSF attend Football Pride Week

From the 05 – 09 October 2016, football fans  hosted an international conference on homophobia in football. The EGLSF was represented by John Ryan and Sarah Townsend.

At that moment I realized that I challenged myself again. ‘I’m just an amateur. Why do I do it again?’ I thought. However, I knew that I could do it. A year ago I did it and reached Stockholm.

These fears and questions were on my mind on the first day of the Freedom Bike Ride to Helsinki. The situation was even more worrying as [...]
