Kent Cricket and the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are pleased to be working with Stonewall for the 3rd year in a row to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) players and fans at every level of cricket.
The ECB has joined forces with LGBT+ equality charity Stonewall to bring Rainbow Laces to the Vitality Blast and Kia Super League this coming weekend.
The campaign will see thousands of players and fans lace up their Rainbow Laces from 9th – 12th August to show that cricket is everyone’s game and that LGBT+ people are welcome and included at every level in our sport.
We know that most fans welcome and accept LGBT+ people in sport. However, we can’t let a minority of fans spoil the game and make LGBT+ fans feel unwelcome watching or playing cricket.
By supporting Rainbow Laces we are stepping up to show that offensive chants, language and behaviour have no place in our game.
Join us and Stonewall to make sport everyone’s game.
