Aslie Pitter MBE

Being someone who was very small, I had to work twice as hard to get into football teams.
Being black meant I had to accept racism on the football field.

Being gay meant I could not be myself in or outside of Football, especially in the locker room.
For me it’s been a three way battle. My race, my height and my sexuality.

I still play at the age of 57.

I hope my age doesn’t become another obstacle.
Things have changed a great deal in regard to acceptance of gay sports people, but we still have a long way to go before everyone is truly equal.
