LGBT+ football club opens up beautiful game to everyone

There are still no openly gay male players in the top leagues of British football, despite increasing acceptance for members of the LGBT+ community off the pitch.

Across the UK, a network of gay-friendly teams, like the Bristol Panthers, meet to play and share their love of the beautiful game.

They offer a space for players to avoid any abuse.
