12-14 October, Bratislava
LGBT group Saplinq are hosting a number of events during the first weekend of the #FootballPeople weeks. The group will start by hosting a panel discussion with other LGBT groups in the Slovakian capital on how to tackle homophobia in sport. There will also be a “radical” embroidery workshop where participants will design scarves and badges with anti-discrimination slogans.
Following the panel discussion and workshop, a football tournament will be held in the Telocvičňa Mladosť sports complex with LGBTQ organisations and LGBT activists from throughout Slovakia playing in the event. After the tournament, a party and awards ceremony will take place to conclude the fun filled two days that celebrate inclusion and aim to tackle some of the major issues facing the LGBTQ community in sports.
