The rainbow keeps getting brighter as the support for our #RainbowLaces campaign continues to spread the love. Footballers, rugby players, regular folk, politicians and whatever category Piers Morgan falls in to, have all been tweeting their support today.
Paddy Power, in association with Stonewall UK, the Gay Football Supporters’ Network, Arsenal FC, the Metro and so many more awesome groups and individual, want to kick homophobia out of football and out of everywhere else.
Here are some of today’s heroes.
