Today we are happy to share that the American Outlaws, supporters of the United States National Soccer Team, are signing on as allies with gay4soccer.
From Outlaws co-founder and Vice President Justin Brunken:
The American Outlaws are a UNITED group of U.S. Soccer fans not discriminating by any means, including sexual orientation. Anyone can and should be able to watch U.S. Soccer games with other fans just as passionate, despite their different backgrounds or preferences. Unite and Strengthen
With 80 chapters and thousands of members, the Outlaws are by far the largest group of supporters now standing as LGBT allies. It comes at a time when Robbie Rogers–who scored the first US goal under Jurgen Klinsmann in a match against Mexico–is contemplating a return the game, so it’s great to see that if he returns to the field wearing red, white, and blue, so many fans will have his back.
So many good posts this week, so it’s time for a recap…
- We spotted a bit of gay pride from the Canadian fans at the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying
- Women’s Professional Soccer suspended this year’s season, and out player Tasha Kai had some choice words on the subject
- Janine is really happy that the Don of the Meow Mafia is a soccer ally
- Rachna got some conversation started on the American Outlaws being gung ho for men’s friendlies but mostly silent on women’s qualifying.
- We got team updates from Toronto and Colorado, while meeting our Toronto and Portland writers
Have a great weekend! And behave yourself, because Sigi is watching.
No bait and switch here. There will be some hot twins featured as part of today’s Happy Hour and I know that makes me happy. We also celebrate the success of the USA Women and look forward to the success of the USA Men. And the only thing hotter than the twins after the jump may be the marketing put together by the Chicago Fire and Quaker Oats. read more…
