Pride of the Foxes

James Maddison and Ben Chilwell meet Leicester City's LGBT supporters' group as part of the Premier League's partnership with Stonewall on the Rainbow Laces campaign.

Foxes Pride, Leicester City

The Premier League and our clubs work in partnership with Stonewall on the Rainbow Laces campaign, as we continue to celebrate LGBT inclusion and make it clear that football is for everyone.

Graeme Smith, co-founder of Leicester City's LGBT supporter group, Foxes Pride, joined fellow co-founder Paul and member Mish at King Power Stadium to discuss the Rainbow Laces campaign with first-team players Ben Chilwell and James Maddison.

"What we're starting to see now - and Ben and James are examples of that - are players starting to get involved," said Graeme, who discussed the importance of players being allies to the LGBT community.

The club's inclusive nature also extends to the pitch.

"I think if a team-mate were to come out and say they were gay, then nothing changes," Maddison said. "That's how it is with us."
