Proud Seagulls – A new LGBT+ supporters group

Besi Besemar September 15, 2017

A new football supporters group is in the process of starting at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Proud Seagulls will join the many Premier League and Championship clubs that now have an LGBT+ supporters group.

In fact Brighton & Hove Albion are one of the few clubs that do NOT have an LGBT+ supporters group.

If you support the Albion, go to games or have never been and want to go, but feel you may not enjoy the environment, then let Proud Seagulls help.

If you are sick of hearing homophobic, transphobic or racist ‘chants’ go along and join them, the more the club are aware of the problem the more they can do.

There will shortly be a rainbow flag with the club motif displayed within the stadium for everyone to see, especially the away fans.

Seagulls supporters suffer more homophobic abuse than any other club in the football league, more so at away games and they want to change that, not alone, but with the cooperation  and help of other LGBT+ supporters groups up and down the country.

Also, the FA are very slowly taking a stand against discrimination and racism.

At the moment there is no joining fee for membership and shortly they will be announcing their first formal meeting on social media.

If you want more details, would like to join or help in any way, email Stuart Matthews:
