Rainbow Crows Presdient was interviewed for segment in the Crows Show in 2018 for IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia. An article on the club website also quoted:
One of the Adelaide Football Club’s newest supporter groups, Rainbow Crows, is going from strength to strength.
The group started in August 2016 to provide a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning and intersex (LGBTQI) people who support football.
Though it started as just a small community online through their Facebook page, the Rainbow Crows have now grown to hold events, have memberships and be involved in a number of activities around the Club.
Rainbow Crows president Brett McAloney said providing that safe space for LGBTQI people is the group’s main goal.
May 17 is also an important day as it’s International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) Day and the Rainbow Crows have thrown their full support behind the day.
“There is a lot of history about homophobia in sport and in the grandstands, so a lot of people do find that environment quite daunting and we provide that safe space,” Mr McAloney said.
“We do group ticketing where people can come along and sit together in a group.
“We’ve had people that have never been to the football, that felt a bit daunted about going and have come for the first time and had a really good time.
“Others that went as children, perhaps with their family, and then when they’ve come out as adults, they’ve felt a little bit worried or concerned about that environment and we’ve been able to provide that safe space.
“They’ve been able to come back to the football, something that they’ve always loved.”
Mr McAloney said the Rainbow Crows are really happy with the progression of the group.
“We’ve been getting a large amount of feedback from the community and they’ve said really great things about the positive impact it has had on them.”
