Fighting Homophobia in AFL

Jason Ball started a campaign to end discrimination of gay people in the Australian Football League (AFL). His campaign has hit a high today – his advocacy is featured in a key newspaper after he received a phone call from the CEO of the AFL saying they’ll broadcast “Say No to Homophobia” ads during the preliminary final. Ball has played amateur footy since he was five. He writes:

“It’s a blokey culture — and gay slurs are a regular part of games and training. It’s a horrible reminder that you’re different, reviled and unwelcome. It felt like the footy club would be the one place I could never come out.”
