Football v Transphobia Week of Action

The Football v Transphobia week of action takes place 24 – 31st March 2021, ending on Transgender Day of Visibility

This is the third season we will be taking specific action on trans inclusion and transphobia in the game. We will be active across social media, using our presence to amplify the voices of trans people and allies in all aspects of football.

We are encouraging clubs, fans and other football stakeholders to get involved. Here’s what is coming up in 2021 and how you can take part:


We are encouraging cisgender people in football to show their support for their trans friends, team mates, fellow fans and all trans people in the game across social media during the Week of Action

All you have to do is take a short video of yourself as follows:

Introduce yourself

< pause >

State why you are a #transfootyally

Check out this example from freelance community worker, activist and panellist, Sharifa Whitney James.

We want to flood social media with content of cisgender football folk sharing their allyship with trans football folk. We’d also like trans and non-binary people to use the hashtag to talk about the importance of allies, how allies have helped them or any ideas about how allies can support trans people in the game.

There are other ways for trans and non-binary people to get involved in the Week of Action and the Football v Transphobia Campaign Lead, Natalie, would love to hear from you.
