On the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the uprising that sparked a global push for LGBT+ rights, Reading City would like to reaffirm its commitment to ensuring that we deliver a football club that's enjoyable for all regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or disability, faith or age.
We believe that sport should be everyone's game and therefore will continue to fight for LGBT+ inclusion in football and eliminate discrimination from the game.
Our Media & Public Relations Manager Ryan Sheehan had this to say:
"As a member of the LGBT+ Community myself, it's great to see Reading City Football Club committed to delivering a football club that's enjoyable for all. We have a real family ethos here at Reading City Football Club which allowed me to feel comfortable enough to tell those I work with that I was gay without any fear of reprisal.
I want to welcome members of the LGBT+ community from across Reading and Berkshire to our club and have therefore launched the Reading City FC LGBT+ Supporters Network. Reading City Football Club stands with the LGBT+ Community"
