WONDERKID premieres its eagerly anticipated trailer, a film by Rhys Chapman, which tackles one of football’s biggest issues – homophobia. Starring Chris Mason, the film depicts the inner turmoil of a gay professional footballer as he strives to succeed as his true self in a hyper masculine environment.
The film is part of a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the lack of openly gay professionals in the sport. It has won the support of Sir Ian McKellen & Stephen Fry, as well as organisations such as The Telegraph, adidas, The FA, The Premier League, Kick it Out, Watford Football Club, Tottenham Hotspur & Sky Sports.
WONDERKID will premiere at the Odeon in Leciester Square before the start of next season and will be released online shortly afterwards.
