Daggers FC latest to fly rainbow flag for history month

Dagenham and Redbridge football club will pin the flag to their home shirts for the rest of the season for LGBTQ+ history month.

“The Daggers are celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month this weekend! We are displaying the rainbow flag on our home shirt for the remainder of the season, as we look to raise awareness as well as celebrate diversity!” the club’s account Tweeted.

Only two out of 5000 professional male football players have ever come out publicly as gay.

Last year, the director of England’s women’s football Eniola Aluko told a select committee of MPs there were gay male players, but they were scared to come out due to the potential backlash from fans.

The move by the club is the latest celebration of queer culture from Barking and Dagenham Council.

The council has already hosted a series of online events, including a screening of the film Pride and a flag-raising at Barking Town Hall.

There are still seven events to come, including a dance evening, open-mic night, cabaret performance, and solidarity event.
