17th QFF Conference – Zurich

Letzi Junxx hosted the 17th international network meeting of the “Queer Football Fanclubs” (QFF) last month.
Around 80 delegates were happy to welcome representatives of the new QFF members FFaH and fare, as well as international guests from the English LGBTIQ alliance “Pride in Football“ along with John Ryan from the board of the EGLSF. New and different perspectives combined with fresh ideas turned out to be a big asset for the conference and valuable insights initiated many fruitful discussions.

The tournament was well organised, ESSDA knows how to do that. The atmosphere between the competitors was great, but that’s Same Sex dancing! We all want to […]
