European Networking Conference Queering Football: Addressing Homophobia at Mega-Sport Events
17.-18 November 2017 | University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Sport
About the conference
In anticipation of the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, SPOLINT in association with VIDC will host a 2-day conference in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Homophobia – prejudices and violence against LGBTIQs – is still one of the main and untackled problems in European football. The conference will bring together officials from international and national sporting organisations, including FIFA, UEFA, as well as representatives from grassroots organisations, NGOs, clubs, professional athletes, activists in LGBT rights, academics and sports professionals.
The conference is part of the Erasmus+ funded project Queering Football – Tackling Homophobia and Promoting Anti-Discrimination around Major Sport Events.
