Football vs homophobia

Standard

So now, that the world championship in Brazil is on its way, an important topic considering football should be reconsidered.

Do you already know the football vs homophobia campaign?

We made a prezi presentation about this campaign fighting homphobia in professional football. It shows the campaign´s aim and the multimedial success it could reach. Most of the first league football clubs, such as Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are supporting the campaign.

Robbie Rogers, a professional player came out to be homosexual last year. It was a big topic throughout the media and he was both, admired and criticised, for doing so after announcing his retirement.

See this interview about his intentions:

The kleinerdrei blog is one of the nominees for the Bobs. The Blog is run by several authors, which are journalists or students, who are internet experts and have their different specialities. They write not only about lifestyle topics, but also feminism, poilitics, gender and culture. Their interest is to publish topics that are touching the heart, since the kleinerdrei (smaller three) is the digital symbol for a heart.

The article Shalalalala, Erotica! (3) – Das Foto danach by LENA is really worth reading – of course it is in German though. It takes the turn from #aftersex selfies, which is the new hype on instagram at the moment, to the global topic of LGBT rights. It is really making you think about the integration of LGBT in society.
