Learn more about Albion’s LGBTQ+ supporters' club, Proud Baggies, by watching a two-part documentary discussion about LGBTQ+ inclusion, hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Richie Anderson.
The two-part video was created following a series of Zoom calls hosted by Richie Anderson, a patron of Proud Baggies, in which he spoke to founders and members of the supporters’ club, along with Albion’s Operations Director, Mark Miles.
During Football v Homophobia month of action this February, Proud Baggies were at The Hawthorns delivering their LGBTQ+ Awareness training to 60 Albion Foundation coaches and staff. The session was part of the LGBTQ+ Diversity & Inclusion Development Programme being rolled out across WBA by Proud Baggies.
As a voluntary organisation we rely entirely on grants and donations. We are therefore very grateful for any contributions to help us continue our work.
