Manchester City Football Club Becomes A Progressive Employer and Business

In 2004 I posted an article about the English Football Association's battle against homophobia (England's Football Association Fights Homophobia).

Now, Manchester City of the English Premier League has taken the cause a step further by joining the Diversity Champions scheme, run by gay rights group Stonewall. (Man City's gay recruitment drive).

According to the article, '[t]he club said it wanted to send a welcoming message to gay, lesbian and bisexual supporters, be inclusive and be a progressive employer.'

Kudos to Manchester City Football Club and congratulations to Stonewall for this ground-breaking agreement!
