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.
West Bromwich Albion and Proud Baggies will again be participating in this year's Birmingham Pride Parade and we want YOU to get involved!
Entry into our Parade walking group is free and open to all Proud Baggies members, West Bromwich Albion supporters, family and friends; adults and children.
We are delighted to announce that Dwight Gayle has been voted winner of the first Proud Baggies Player of the Season Award. Polling 51% of all votes cast, it was an emphatic win for our current leading goal scorer who also scooped WBA supporters and the Disability Supporters Group player of the season too!
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.
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.
