Rainbow Blades bringing colour to Sheff Utd

The PL club's new LGBT+ fan group has been helping supporters during the COVID-19 pandemic

When Sheffield United proudly announced the formation of its first lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT+) supporters group, the Rainbow Blades, this year it came at a perfect time for the group to connect.

"Obviously there's going to be some loneliness creep in and there's going to be some fears of isolation [during lockdown]," says Rainbow Blades founder and chair James Laley.

"LGBT+ Blades can join this group. They can be in a safe space. They can have that connectivity again.

"They can meet like-minded fans and that's what's been so impressive and that's what I'm so proud of."
