In a few days UEFA EURO 2012 will kick off in Warsaw, Poland. The same day the opening of the first Euro Pride House ever at European Football Championships ever will take place. Euro Pride House is an initiative of the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation and is part of a wider European project, Football For Equality, whose aim is to tackle homophobia and other forms of discrimination through sport. The concept behind Euro Pride House is to raise awareness of the involvement of LGBT people in football as supporters and participants and to create a dialogue amongst football’s many stakeholders on homophobia and transphobia, particularly within Eastern Europe.
Euro Pride House is a place for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community to enjoy Euro2012 in safety alongside straight friends, allies and fellow supporters in an environment of tolerance and respect for fundamental human rights.”
We would like to welcome you at the opening at Friday 8 June 2012 at 16.00 hours. The address can be found in the official invitation which may be requested by writing an email to: lukasz @ eglsf.info.
