Albion travel to the The Den on Saturday to face Millwall and both clubs are taking the opportunity to support the Football v Homophobia campaign.
 
F v H is an international initiative opposing homophobia in football. Endorsed by the FA, its goal is to tackle homophobia and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in grassroots football.
 
Mikey Collins, secretary and trustee of Millwall for All says, "The fact that 50 professional clubs are now backing the initiative is raising the campaign's profile and I'm proud that once again Millwall are taking a lead.

“We do need to get the message across to fans that homophobic language in a football stadium has no more place than racist language."

Both sets of players will be warming up in the official Football v Homophobia T-shirts before the match.
 
Martin Schooley, from Albion in the Community, manages the campaign at Brighton and added, “It sets a good example to young people of acceptance and the fact both clubs are joining together sets a good precedent.
 
“We have encountered Millwall’s community schemes before and we have a lot of respect for the work they do. It is good to see the two clubs pulling together.”
