The Justin Campaign

Fashanu is named after Justin Fashanu. In 1990 (20 years ago) Justin Fashanu became the first, and still only (20 years ago) prominent footballer to come out as gay. Justin Fashanu took his own life in 1998.

Check this out.


"The Justin Campaign was founded to demonstrate that ten years after Justin Fashanu’s tragic suicide in 1998, homophobia is still hugely prevalent in the world of professional football.

Along with raising awareness the campaign has a strong focus on Art, Events, Education and football. Through these four key initiatives and some forward thinking strategic work with other inclusive sporting organisations The Justin Campaign seeks to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions that exist around gay men in football and work towards a future where the visibility of gay and bisexual men in professional football are both accepted and celebrated.

There are a number of things you can do to support us. Sign our petition, play for our campaigning team, The Justin Fashanu All-Stars, become a volunteer or make a donation."
