Field hockey players strip down to battle homophobia in sports

If you’re going to take your clothes off to reveal your perfect physique, you might as well do it for a good cause.

As you know, there’s still plenty of homophobia in the world of sports. To combat antigay sentiment in athletics and promote diversity, Perth Pythons — an LGBTQ-friendly hockey club — has produced a fabulously naked calendar featuring many of Australia’s handsomest hockey players.

Shot at Swanbourne, a nudist beach located in Perth, Pride in Hockey 2018 features both pro and amateur hockey players alike.

“As an Australian hockey player, I’m proud to support this project,” says Dylan Wotherspoon, who plays for the Australian Kookaburras. (He’s Mr. December, by the way.)

“Your sexuality does not define your skill or commitment – and yet homophobia stops many LGBTI people from participating in sport. Sport should be inclusive for everyone.”

The proceeds from the calendar will go towards Perth Pythons’ ongoing attempt to make sports more diverse and accepting.
