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 auctioning Jake Livermore's captain's armband and Proud Baggies T Shirt as worn in our Rainbow Laces match vs Brentford in December 2018. All proceeds will got to Stonewall, Britains biggest LGBT charity.
5th April, The Hawthorns. Proud Baggies teamed up once again with Football v Homophobia to deliver more training as part of the WBA LGBT+ Awareness programme. It was great to see our Albion Foundation future leaders in sport from Sandwell College so positive about diversity and inclusion!
Proud Baggies joined a host of teams from the Albion family at the start of a week of activities celebrating WBA's rich and diverse cultures in the run up to the BCFC game on Friday 29th March. Two Proud Baggies' teams played a hard fought match alongside representatives from Blues4All, Apna Albion, the WBA girls U12s and a pan disability team.
Last week our Founder and Chair, Piero Zizzi was a key note speaker at the Football Safety Officers Association Spring Conference. During his speech, Piero discussed how football can be a key agent of societal change and highlighted the work Proud Baggies are doing with WBA to make the Hawthorns a safe and welcoming environment for the LGBT+ community.
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.
