Cologne is home to two major players in sports and spirituality: the 1. FC Köln currently ranks 8th in the Bundesliga and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cologne is the biggest Diocese in Europe. Recently, the two meet in the hashtag #outinchurch. The soccer club supports the over 120 priests and employees with the Catholic church community in Germany who came out as queer and launched a campaign demanding an end to institutional discrimination against LGBTQ people. You can love God, love soccer, and be queer at the same time!
