Sport is not for everyone

Rainbow laces

This campaign actually made me think how hard it is to promote equality within traditional sports. But I was astonished how quickly it took off and managed to influence grassroots rugby and football.

To me the greatest acknowledgment of the campaign was not from famous sports personalities but rather the leadership it championed in the regular grassroots coaches/dads/mums.

I don’t think we are there yet, but at least we’re on the way. Unfortunately, it will be tough and, most of the time, it will be an uphill battle. I hope the next generation of players will not be judged by their sexual orientation or the colour of their skin, but by their leadership on the field.
