Chris loves sport. He participates in it, he is a spectator, he enjoys it, he sometimes gets angry about it, he shouts about it, he works for it and he makes sacrifices for it. The Gay Football Supporters' Network was set up over a decade ago to help promote football to a small section of society that, for some within it, were sometimes made to feel marginalised simply by joining-in a sport its members loved. The GFSN incorporates three elements: playing, supporting and promoting. Chris is elected the Chair of this organisation and has been involved for many years, nearly all during his spare time. He plays in a GFSN affiliated team (in the world's only gay national league, here in the UK), he helps arrange social functions, trips to games, international tournaments and promotes the cause. This week he is meeting the Prime Minister at a reception in Downing Street to talk about diversity in sport. He was part of team that brought IGLFA World Championships to London in 2008 and he works with national and local media to promote the organisation's message, most recently on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. He also works with the FA on its diversity panel. He is an avid Manchester United fan. He is a trustee of a lcoal youth club. He has taught archery to youngsters, he participates in various sports and of course plays football. Most importantly, he is extremely excited about the prospect of being part of London 2012.The GFSN was set up over 20 years ago and has 3 elements - playing, supporting and campaigning against homophobia.
