Today – which is International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) – things go to a new level.
AFL superstars including Brownlow Medallist Jobe Watson, Scott Pendlebury, Jude Bolton, Drew Petrie, Patrick Dangerfield and Chris Judd – to name just a few – are putting their weight behind a campaign to stamp out gay slurs in the game, both on and off the field.
These players are taking a pledge to stamp out the use of homophobic language, while also raising awareness of the damaging effects it can have within sport and the community. – Jason Ball in Gay footballer Jason Ball calls on players and fans to never use homophobic language, News.com.au.
