Welcome to Villa & Proud

We are the Official Supporters' Network of Aston Villa FC.

Our mission is to empower, support and build LGBTQ+ inclusion for fans, players and staff at Aston Villa Football Club


Our Campaigns


Pride Month

During Pride Month, we run campaigns and competitions to raise awareness of our network, and most importantly, the LGBT+ community. 


For Pride Month 2020, we launched the hashtag #BeVillaProud. Being "Villa Proud" refers to being both proud to support Aston Villa, and proud to be your true and authentic self. This campaign is aiming to encourage Villa fans to focus on what unites us, whilst also embracing each others differences. 

Villa Allies

As an Official Supporters Network of Aston Villa Football Club, Aston Villa FC are by far our biggest Ally. However smaller groups, or even single people, can still make a huge difference. The most important thing is this: 

Everyone can be an ally.

LGBT+ people can be allies too. For example, a Gay person can be a Trans ally, or a white LGBT+ person can be an ally of someone from a racial minority. 


Our Events Officer Mike is always planning fun activities and events for our members. Make sure to keep tabs on our socials, and get involved in our members WhatsApp to stay up to date with all of the details! 

Rainbow Laces

Rainbow Laces is the Premier League's annual LGBTQ+ awareness campaign, usually held in November/ December. We always get involved, whether that be in the fanzone at Villa Park, with flag displays, or handing out rainbow laces.
