PHOTOS: Gay Rugby Team Makes History By Being First To Play At Professional Match

Today you may be singing “God Bless America,” but these boys from down under may leave you humming another tune entirely.

The Sydney Convicts are about to make history by becoming the first gay rugby union club to play at a professional match. On July 6th, they’ll go head to head with Macquarie University for a “curtain raising” game before two professional teams compete.

The event is being thrown to combat homophobia, and it’s a great opportunity for the sports community to put differences aside and come together for a love of the game.

Nick Phipps, who plays for the Australian national team, said:

“Sport is such a beautiful thing and in this day and age, there should be no discrimination at all.

After getting to know some of the boys who play for the Sydney Convicts, they’re really good fellas and we want to help them as much as we can.”

And since we just can’t help ourselves, here’s many more reasons to love the Sydney Convicts:
