This weekend, Barca’s men’s and women’s teams both have big goals to achieve. Xavi Hernández’s side could secure second place in La Liga thanks to their match at Getafewhile Jonatan Giráldez’s side are looking to end their season with a perfect record of 30 wins from 30 games.

But they will also play against LGTBI-phobia by wearing the second band of purple color. Barça do it to support International Day Against LGTBI Phobia May 17 as part of European Diversity Month.

This activity is organized by the club’s Diversity and Inclusion Department, which has organized a series of activities this month to support social awareness and build a more diverse club, promoting inclusive communication, recognition of diversity in all its forms (gender, sexual orientation, functional and cultural diversity) and take a stand against discrimination. During European Diversity Monththe club hosted a series of workshops, conferences and inclusive sporting events both in public and internally.

The second comic of this season has been specially designed to send a message for the empowerment of women. Purple was chosen because it is a mix of red and blue which popularly represents the fight for gender equality, and also includes a topical reference to the club’s anthem (“totes unides fem força”/”together we are strong”), as well as the inclusion of the colors of the LGTBI rainbow flag.
