Ten Years After: We Remember Justin

This year saw the tenth anniversary of the tragic suicide of Britain’s only out gay footballer Justin Fashanu. The Justin Campaign is using this occasion to push forward the campaign against homophobia in football. It is easy to forget that Justin was the first £1m player and that he was thrown off the team by Brian Clough when he came out.

The Justin Campaign wants to make May 2nd Justin Fashanu Day so that we can all commemorate his life and remember the impact homophobia can have.
