Who is GFSN? A voluntary organisation, the GFSN was established in 1989 as a social network for LGB&T football fans across the UK.  Since then we have expanded into hosting our own national league and take the lead in tackling homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in football.

The GFSN works to maintain a social network for LGB&T supporters, to encourage inclusive teams for players of all abilities, and to campaign against discrimination in football, with a view to creating a safe and tolerant environment both on and off the pitch.
