‘I have known and worked with SAYiT over the past few years on numerous events and campaigns. The work they do to transform the lives of young LGBT+ people in Sheffield is remarkable. This was an easy choice, their values and aims align perfectly with what Rainbow Blades and Sheffield Rainbow Laces stands for. All young LGBT+ people deserve the same opportunities as anyone else. We want to ensure that football & sport in general is welcoming and encourages the very best potential of LGBT+ people.’
