Bohemians fans unveiled a brilliant LGBT flag at Dalymount Park last night

Bohemians edged Sligo Rovers 1-0 in the Airtricity League yesterday but just as noticeable as the result was a memorable flag seen in the crowd.

Football hasn't always been the most tolerant sport towards LGBT issues but recent steps show that the sport is becoming more inclusive. A gay football team in London got a standing ovation at half time of a QPR game last month and this show of support for the LGBT community at Dalymount Park is also encouraging.

That fan gets extra marks for a decent bit of wordplay.

That is just one example of inclusiveness from the club in recent months, with the team painting a mural welcoming refugees back in September.
