Abstract

In this chapter, we draw on our different past trajectories to explore the links between theories of sexualities and genders, and anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic and anti-biphobic intervention within UK University footballing contexts. Our critical reflections include over a decade of involvement with scholarship and campaigning surrounding gender and sexuality in football (Caudwell) and significant project development of the Football 4 Peace International reconciliation initiative (Spacey). We seek to plot the ways scholarship, especially theories of gender and sexualities, informs grassroots praxis. More specifically, we focus on the idea of making a difference when it comes to social divisions and inequalities vis-à-vis sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). During our discussions we draw from a range of research materials, including the voices of young people and students to demonstrate the ways participation in football can help, as well as hinder, anti-discriminatory policy and practice at the level of the locale.
