Presentation abstract

Drawing on data generated from semi-structured, one-to-one interviews, this article focuses on the attitudinal disposition toward homosexuality of 12 English academy level football players aged 14-15. Results highlight the presence of progressive attitudes toward homosexuality even though some of the youth feel they lack the agency to contest homophobia when espoused in their schools. Using a blend of two dominating masculinities theories we use these interviews to highlight that boys in this setting are best understood as a complex imbrication of inclusivity yet socially-passive acceptance. We suggest that boys of this age are now primed forlearning agency to contest the social marginalisation of others.
