Officially launched in September 2017 at West Bromwich Albion's inaugral Diversity Day, our Proud Baggies' Members regularly meet for home and away matches, socials, club events, campaigning and fundraising.
We want to bring the Football and LGBT+ community together to celebrate diversity and increase LGBT+ visibility at West Bromwich Albion FC, making our club a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for all.
We're delighted to announce the East Stand will be home to our new Proud Baggies flag next season. Having a permanent presence at The Hawthorns will help us to further promote LGBT+ visibility & inclusion at WBA, a club welcoming of all.
On 5th July, our founder Piero joined fellow panelists Ryan Atkin, Claire Harvey and Jay Lemonius at Dentsu Aegis for a discussion on the importance of LGBT+ inclusion in sport. You can see highlights via our YouTube channel.
We've been extremely busy since our launch back in September 2017! Download our 2017/18 Season Report below and find out more.
