Graeme: My name is Graeme Smith. And I’m the chair of Foxes Pride, the Leicester City LGBT fan group. And this is Paul and Mish, two of our members.
Mish: We’re here to meet a couple of the players and hopefully share our stories with them about how it feels like for us to be football fans.
Ben: First things first, let’s find out a little bit about what Foxes Pride is because we don’t know much about it.
Graeme: So, Foxes Pride was formed about five years ago for LGBT fans of Leicester City and their friends, supporters and allies.
James: So, what kind of issues do the LGBT community face?
Paul: If you are at a game, and you hear, you know, a gay slur or anything like that, it actually does make you feel a little bit unwelcome.
James: You don’t want to feel like that. You go to support Leicester like everyone else does. And if you’re made to feel like that, then that’s absolutely wrong.
Mish: I heard someone behind me at a game just shout, “Get up you poof!” because someone had gone down after not a tough tackle and I turned around and he was with his son. And I think it’s that language we wanna to try and eliminate as well.
The new chair of our society will be announced in 24 hours.
