The Premier League has come under fire over its attitude towards homosexuality and the bus will contain every openly gay footballer on board – therefore leaving it empty. The stunt was organised by Paddy Power, who are partners of Brighton Pride, which is the country’s biggest LGBT+ event, and is being headlined by Britney Spears.’
