Most LGBTQ Supportive NFL Teams Fans

By Charlotte Robinson, December 26, 2021

Since I won my Emmy Award from CBS Sports NFL Today that helped carve out the most amazing career I could possibly ask for this story caught my eye. A new Outsports online survey found that the Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars & the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans are the most LGBTQ supportive football teams. The Cincinnati Bengals have the most supportive fans online of LGBTQ according to a survey that examined 2,930 posts on Reddit NFL forums. In Bengals sub-reddits 60% of the comments from posts from September 2020 to September 2021 were positive toward the LGBTQ community. The other online communities that posted more than 50% positive comments were the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers & Las Vegas Raiders according to the survey for the ticket site Tickpick. In a separate survey of 1,000 sports fans for Tickpick (including 19% who identified as LGBTQ), fans of the New England Patriots (69%), Carolina Panthers (64%) and Kansas City Chiefs (64%) said they would be very or extremely supportive if a player was gay or bisexual. In summary the survey authors concluded, “Generally speaking, LGBTQ+ support across the NFL & its associated fan bases certainly exists & appears to be growing, but the question remains as to what pace. ... If there’s anything you should take from this article, it’s that a majority of NFL fans believe the league needs to be more inclusive & supportive of LGBTQ+ people. It’s also worth keeping in mind that NFL teams have drastically increased their pro-LGBTQ+ tweet numbers since 2019.” For More Info…

Sadly the Buccaneers haven't hosted a Pride event for years, despite the views of their fans.
