There was plenty of passion for the game as the gay and lesbian football fans from QFF met last weekend. Over three days the 85 delegates and represenatitves of FSE, FARE and BAFF discussed many topics as well enjoying a party. The event was organised by the Rainbow Zebras, the LGBT Fanclub of Duisburg football team MSV. Duisburgs mayor Osenger and the president of MSV, Kirmse also spoke at the conference of 22 fan clubs from Germany and Switzerland. 

For the first time members could take part in workshops on various fan issues attended by specialists in the field. Information about European stadia, fan culture across Europe, QFF's international orientation, goals and concepts were covered. "Both the enthusiasm for the workshops as well as the results that came out of them are reasons to be happy" said QFF Press Spokesperson Dirk Brüllau.

The 19th German fanclub and the second FC Bayern fanclub, the MonacoQueers also joined the network.

The next meeting is from 6th - 8th September in Karlsruhe.
