Yoann Lemaire: support from IGLFA and EGLSF

Both FGG member organization the International Gay and Lesbian Football Association and the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation have added their support to Yoann Lemaire, the French football player refused a license to return to his team after denouncing his club's homophobic behavior.

EGLSF co-president Lou Englefield:

"I know our members throughout Europe will want to support Paris Foot Gay in their actions to call FC CHOOZ to account. The failure of this club to deal with homophobia and to make their club safe for all players is an issue of concern for all of us and in particular for the sport of football. We are delighted that Paris Foot Gay is being supported in their action by President of the French Football Professional League, Frederic Thieriez. Whilst homophobia still pervades football in many countries, it is hugely encouraging to see those at the head of footballing authorities give their backing to campaigns for equality & inclusion. "
