Welcome to SAFC LGBTQ!
Promoting Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
SAFC LGBTQ is Sunderland AFC's lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer supporters association. The group is open to LGBTQ people along with their friends and family granted that they believe in the core values of the group.
Our goal is to encourage a safe environment within the Stadium of Light for LGBTQ supporters. The group is committed to tackling all forms of discrimination which still unfortunately occur in our stadiums. We also aim to encourage LGBTQ fans who perhaps don't attend games fearing they're not welcome, to join us and come along.
We work with the club (though are separate from them) to discuss equality issues and what can be done to ensure the game is truly representative of our society. We hope that an improved atmosphere around the stadium will translate onto the pitch, as there remains this anomaly in the top tiers of the men's game that there are no openly LGBTQ players.
