Lesbian Visibility Week - The Big Kickabout!

23rd April 2024

Lesbian Visibility Week - The Big Kickabout!

To mark the upcoming 2024 Lesbian Visibility Week, we wanted to highlight a campaign that invites LGBTQIA+ women and non-binary people to play football on Sunday the 28th of April:

“LGBTQIA women and non-binary people belong in sport, and we belong in football, from the Premier League to the local park... The Big Kickabout is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our community, so grab a ball and help us set an unofficial world record for Lesbian Visibility Week 2024!” (FA consultant Liz Ward).

We know that many games will already be taking place on the 28th across Scotland - from SWF fixtures, to grassroots matches at the Glasgow Community Football League 7s tournament. And if you're not already playing that day, then we encourage you to arrange your own kickabout with friends!

If you want to take part in the campaign, then all you need to do is share your own kickabout on social media, tagging @lesbianvisibilityweek and using the hashtag #LVW24

It's as simple as that! We look forward to seeing your kickabouts.
