Rainbow Owls

Rainbow Owls are the independent and officially recognised LGBTQ+ supporters group of Sheffield Wednesday.

Formed in June 2023, the group aims to engage with and support fans who are gay, bisexual, transgender and any other LGBTQ+ identity, as well as the wider LGBTQ+ community across Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

The mission of Rainbow Owls is to celebrate, empower and support LGBTQ+ and ally fans of SWFC, so they feel welcome and can be themselves in a more inclusive footballing environment.

Members of Rainbow Owls meet and socialise at The Pangolin (located next to Hillsborough Park tram stop) before each home game, with non-matchday social events also held on a regular basis, creating a safe space to enjoy our beautiful game and meet other LGBTQ+ fans.

The group are also active on X/Twitter at @LGBT_Owls and Instagram at @rainbowowls.
