Parkwood Ladies decided to support the Rainbow Laces campaign two seasons ago to show unity with the LGBT community. Rainbow laces were worn for the club’s Twentieth anniversary match against Watford Ladies which attracted over 500 people from the local community. The photos have been integrated into the Facebook and Twitter pages. These actions were thanked and praised by several players from the squad who are part of the LGBT community. The campaign has continued to be supported through a social media campaign.
