Pies’ favourite Spanish football team have once again cemented their place in our hearts with the unveiling of their new away kit for next season.
With love and equality very much in the air at the moment, Rayo Vallecano have produced a shirt that pays tribute to ‘the unsung heroes of society’ with each band on the rainbow sash representing a different aspect of social struggle.
€7 of each sale will also be put towards the Federation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons campaign against intolerance.
If you’ll excuse our potentially shonky translation:
Red: People fighting against cancer.
Orange: People fighting for the integration of those with disabilities.
Yellow: People who refuse to lose hope.
Green: People who fight to protect the environment.
Blue: People who fight against child abuse.
Pink: People who fight against domestic and gender violence.
Gold: People who fight against homophobic discrimination.
God bless Rayo Vallecano, a fantastic little club doing fantastic little things!
