Host country Argentina took home the top prize in the gay world cup this weekend.

The two teams were among 28 squads from Europe, the Americas and Australia that participated in the 10th gay football world championship aimed at highlighting the fight against homophobia and discrimination.

With their victory, Los Dogos, named after an Argentine dog breed, automatically qualified for the 2008 tournament hosted by London.

“The people supported us and I hope it’s always like this,” said Dogos coach Nestor Gammella, 51, after the final held at the Defensores de Belgrano stadium. “We beat the world champions and we are happy.”

The final score: 1-0.

      “…the 10th gay football world championship aimed at highlighting the fight against homophobia and discrimination…The people supported us and I hope it’s always like this…”

      I get a kick out of straight people who question why we “need” to have gay sporting events, or sports clubs. The above never seems to cross their minds, even after it is explained to them.

      Congrats to the Argentinians for winning and for hosting the event.
