Using Sport to Combat Sexism, Racism, and Homophobia

GFC

An article was just posted on the Seattle Sounders FC website featuring an interview with ProEQ co-Director Cameron Collins. The Sounders are the professional Major League Soccer team here in Seattle.

The article focuses on Gorilla FC, an antifa supporters group, who uses sport as a means to combat sexism, racism, and homophobia. The group finds its roots in similar supporter collectives for the club FC St. Pauli in Germany, who work to fight fascism. That club boasts the largest number of female fans in all of German football.

Head on over to the article here, and be sure to check out Sounder at Heart, the amazing Sounders blog run by the author of the article, Dave Clark.
