Here’s our round-up of last week’s LGBTQI news 🌈
BY NIC CROSARA, IMAGE FIFA 23 GLOBAL COVER
On 18 July, the cover of FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition was unveiled featuring Sam Kerr and Kylian Mbappé on the cover. Whilst other female players have appeared on local editions of the game series, this moment marks the first time a woman has featured on the global cover of EA Sports’ FIFA videogame and the first time a queer player has been featured.
Sam celebrated the moment with an Instagram post: “From playing as a kid, to being in the game and now on the global cover! It’s a dream come true.”
