Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign was created to give sports people a simple way to show their support for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in sport by wearing rainbow coloured shoelaces. Sports clubs, teams and athletes across the world have been getting involved to run the campaign in their sport or activity. The campaign has been supported at the highest levels by Aviva Premiership Rugby and Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United. The Rainbow Laces campaign is a way for everyone involved in sport to show their support for LGBT+ equality and inclusivity.
