Hockey club’s anti-homophobia video

21st November 2014

This week a video of the University of Nottingham men’s hockey club stripping off to help campaign against homophobia in sport went viral.

Sam Boyle reports:

On Thursday’s URN Sport, Sam Barker was joined by Calum, Elliott and James to discuss the story and the wider issue of homophobia in sport and how it can be addressed.

Elliott said that tackling homophobia in sport has to come from the top. The panel also discussed the Play with Pride match between the Universities of Loughborough and Nottingham.

Sam asked the panel whether they thought the Voice Your Rights group’s attempts to have a zero tolerance to homophobia clause written into the manifesto of university sports clubs would be effective.
