Red Card Homophobia photos campaign  
The amazing loezzy  went this week to an Ajax training with a bunch of cards with our logo and a camera. She firstly asked permission of the press spokesperson and then asked the players if they wanted to sign our logo and take a photo with it so we could show the world that they too are against homophobia in football.

I'm so so happy to tell you all that a few footballers have agreed to do so and have taken photos with our logo, and also signed it. This is one of the best things that happened to RCH and I hope there will be more players that will agree to do this.

Here they are, the amazing Red Card Homophobia heroes from AFC Ajax:

Toby Alderweireld
Defender. Played for the Belgium National Team a couple of times.

Lorenzo Ebecilio
Winger. Played in the Under 17 and Under 19 Dutch NT. A cousin of Jeffrey Bruma. His Twitter is @lorenzoebecilio.

Derk Boerrigter
Winger/striker. Recentely joined Ajax for a second time.

Siem de Jong
Attacking midfielder. Has a younger brother who plays for FC Twente. Has played once for the Dutch NT and more times for the Under 19 and Under 21 Dutch NT.

Wow wow wow, this is fantastic!
Love those guys even more now! <3333

And Demi De Zeuw (who just went from Ajax to Spartak Moscow... ) also took part in a "sports persons talking about homosexuality" article in L'HOMO magazine, I think there's been a post here on this...
