English soccer club Manchester United has come out in support of the LGBT community by becoming the first club in the UK to partner with an LGBT charity.

The club will work alongside the Stonewall charity to “help tackle LGBT issues in sport and society.”

Through the partnership, United has become an official member of TeamPride, helping to form opinions, share best practices and support the message of equality. 

Man. United’s Group Managing Director Richard Arnold said the club has a commitment to equality and that it is responsible to show support and recognition to everybody.

This isn’t something you see too often, but it is great to see. Props to United for doing this and promoting equality for all.
