What is EuroPrideHouse?

Euro Pride House is European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation initiative that initially operated in Warsaw (Poland) at Euro 2012.  At Euro 2016, Euro Pride House will take place as a series of events in and around Paris, Nice, Lyon and Marseille. The Fans Embassies are also part of the project. These events are spaces where all fans, specifically including the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans community can enjoy Euro2016 in an environment of tolerance and respect for fundamental human rights.  Thus, the aims Euro Pride House are to raise awareness of the involvement of LGBTIQ people in football as supporters and participants, and to create a dialogue amongst football's many stakeholders on homophobia and transphobia.

We represent a range of partners including fairplay-VIDC, the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation, Football Supporters Europe, Federation Sportive Gaie et Lesbienne, Unione Italiana Sport per Tutti and Spolint Institute in a shared project 'Queering Football - Tackling Homophobia and Promoting Anti-Discrimination around Major Sports Events'. The project is co-funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ sports programme.
