Justin: a figurehead and a footballer

The Justin Campaign is extremely proud to have Justin Fashanu as its figurehead.

Yet, apart from the cruel and tragic way his life ended, not much is known about Justin the person, Justin the footballer and Justin the entertainer.

Here Juliet Jacques talks about Justin's short time playing for Torquay - an unfashionable side which is based in a Devon seaside resort.

This brilliant article is just a small insight into what made Justin tick and how he handled the abuse which came his way, not only for being gay but also for being black.

Perhaps this is why others have not followed in his footsteps?
