Gay Footballer Cavallo savages FIFA over Banning LGBT Bands

Football News

Just In: Gay Australian Footballer Josh Cavallo speaks out over FIFA disciplinary threats at the World Cup for those wearing Rainbow-themed armbands, saying it proves the discrimination in this sport and depicts this sport is not for everyone.

Notably, most European teams are wearing Armbands in support of LGBTQ Rights, a symbolic campaign to protest against Homosexuality Laws; however, the host country Qatar itself categorized Homosexuality as Illegal.

Several participating teams from Europe, including England and Germany, wanted to wear them but withdrew the plan after FIFA cleared that they could be punished with yellow cards if played with armbands.

The Australian Gay Footballer tweeted, “I embrace my Identity,” in response to FIFA’s ban. Even though the LGBTQ Community and my other allies are working hard to make football inclusive, you have demonstrated that it isn’t for everyone.

“It’s not the first time we’ve heard stick to football. The attacks on the LGBTQ+ community from World Cup Leaders affect everyone who remains silent because of your harsh ways. To become a great leader in sport, one must never give up trying to bring all people together,” he added.

Notably, Cavallo competes in Australia’s A-League with Adelaide United. He spoke out about his gay inclination in 2021, and the footballing community praised him as he is the only gay footballer playing in the Top-Flight Football League of Australia.
