My name is Hamish and I'm a journalist at ITV Wales News in Cardiff.
I'm doing a piece about homophobia in football in Wales. I have seen that
Conwy Borough FC are planning on wearing wearing special Football v
Homophobia shirts for a match next week.
But really I'm interested in the wider issue of members of the LGBTQ+
community being made to feel unwelcome in 'conventional' sports teams,
primarily football, because of their sexual orientation or gender status.
I think this is a really important issue and I'd be really grateful if
you could tell me if you know of anyone who has or may have experienced
this at some point in their life? Feel free to pass on my contact details--see below--
if you think they may want to talk to me. They can be completely
anonymous if they want to be.
If you can help me at all with this, please let me know. The filming will
need to take place next week if possible. Kind regards, Hamish.
