GAY TIMES and EE have collaborated with talkSPORT for an hour-long roundtable discussion that will combat homophobia in football, which you can watch here today.

Hosted by former professional footballer and Champions League winner Lianne Sanderson, the roundtable features fans and former players, who discuss a variety of topics such as the meaning of a true ally, how homophobic abuse impacts queer players on and off the field and why there are more openly LGBTQ+ female players in comparison to men.

The panel also looks towards the future, questioning where they see society in the next 10 years – including attitudes towards people of different sexualities and/or genders in the sport and if/when we can expect to see an openly queer footballer in the Premier League.

Lianne is joined by as Fara Williams, England’s all-time most capped player and EE Hope United ambassador as well as Joe Cole, a former England, Chelsea and West Ham midfielder who has since shifted focus to punditry and television commentary, he also fronted EE’s Hope United’s GayVAR campaign with comedian, Tom Allen.
