SAFC LGBTQ is Sunderland AFC's lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer supporters’ association.
The group is open to LGBTQ people along with their friends and family granted that they believe in the core values of the group.
Their goal is to encourage a safe environment within the Stadium of Light for LGBTQ supporters. The group is committed to tackling all forms of discrimination which still unfortunately occur in our stadiums, and they aim to encourage LGBTQ fans who perhaps don't attend games fearing they're not welcome.
SAFC LGBTQ work with the club to discuss equality issues and what can be done to ensure the game is truly representative of our society.
