THE RAINBOW JUMPERS ARE BEING WORN TO PROMOTE INCLUSION AND EQUALITY IN SPORT AND IN LIFE.

By wearing the “Gay That’s OK” rainbow jumpers, all four Clubs are coming together to support equality and inclusion.

Everyone should be treated the same, regardless of sexuality and gender.

Up to 40 AFLW are expected to play on the day.

Football clubs have a big role to play in promoting inclusion and equality and providing positive role models for the LGBTI community.

These football clubs stand together as inclusive clubs. No matter your sexuality or gender these clubs are safe places for the LGBTI community.

The day has been organised by former Monivae College student Charles Beaton (from Gay that’s OK) and former Hamilton resident and well known Melbourne blogger Annie Nolan (UncannyAnnie)
