[UK Gay News] English club Stonewall Lions FC has convincingly won the Gay World Football Championship today at Leyton Orient’s league ground, the Matchroom Stadium, in London.
The London-based club defeated the Argentine team Safgay FC, 5-0, the biggest winning margin in a final since the inaugural competition in September 1997 in Washington DC.
Stonewall previously won the Gay Football World Championship in 2002 and 2006, and last month won the European Gay Football Championship.
“Gay footballers are helping break down stereotypes and prejudice. They are ambassadors for gay inclusion and equality. Gay football enhances understanding and acceptance of gay and lesbian people,” he concluded.
