Rainbow Laces Ambassador Elliott Bennett & Shrewsbury Town Women defender Leanne Rimmer sat down to discuss the Rainbow Laces Campaign and why it is so important.

More than 80 per cent of LGBTQ+ people say they have heard homophobic abuse in a sporting environment.

Among a number of topics, Leanne discussed abuse she has received, what it means to see footballers wearing rainbow laces and the upcoming World Cup which is being held in Qatar, a country where homosexuality is illegal.
