GCF New LGBTQ+ Supporters Group

GCF New LGBTQ+ Supporters Group

Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation Communication

The newly formed network of Gloucestershire supporters is open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as LGBTQ+ allies. An ally is someone who is not LGBTQ+ themselves but wants to show their support to others in the group.

By launching this group, the club hopes to provide the opportunity for more people from a range of different backgrounds to come together and share in their love of cricket.  

The LGBTQ+ Supporters Group will be supported by Out 4 Cricket, a new Community Interest Company who work with and support the LGBTQ+ community and stakeholders in cricket to create inclusive environments that increase community participation through education, advocacy, research, promotion and research.

Throughout the 2023 season, Gloucestershire will support the LGBTQ+ community in a number of ways, including a dedicated fixture during Pride month. This year, they will be celebrating Pride and the LGBTQ+ community during the Vitality Blast match against Sussex Sharks on Thursday 22nd June.

Finally, Out 4 Cricket are running an inaugural cricket tournament which provides a focus on showcasing and celebrating LGBTQ+ inclusion in cricket, and each team will be made up of members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies.
