Diversity in the Field: LGBTQIAP+ football

Since June 2022

Football is a universal language that represents the beauty of the plurality of bodies, genders, races and much more. This virtual exhibition is the result of work by the Brazilian Football Reference Center and sheds light on the practice of LGBTQIAP+ football in Brazil, telling who the protagonists of this story are and reinforcing the importance of respect and inclusion.

Diversity, respect and inclusion

In honor of LGBTQIAP+ pride, the Football Museum has launched the virtual exhibition “Diversidade em Campo: Futebol LGBTQIAP+” (In a free translation, “Diversity on the Field: LGBTQIAP+ Football), which talks about the practice and memory of football within the community in Brazil.  

The exhibition is the result of work carried out since 2020 by the Brazilian Football Reference Center (CRFB), which mapped and recorded teams, people, events and places related to LGBTQIAP+ football in Brazil through interviews and online research.  

The exhibition tells us who the characters are in LGBTQIAP+ football, how teams and championships were formed and in what context they are nowadays. The aim is to highlight the transformative power of football and help strengthen respect and inclusion in the sport.
