This is a campaign made by the Biscayan Government with Athletic Club in the name of stopping homophobia, May 17th being the International Day against Homophobia and Discrimination.

It's a huge gesture since Athletic is probably the biggest institution in the region and the one that gets more publicity and advertisement, I love that this wasn't done by anyone but by the Captains and the President.

Athletic is also hosting sessions called "Thinking Football" where they have discussed homophobia as well:
