Gay Rugby To Take London

The fur will be flying next May when gay rugby club Kings Cross Steelers host the Union Cup. Seventeen gay rugby teams will converge on London in hopes of winning the prize, which is currently held by The Steelers. Mayor Ken Livingstone described the event as “a platform to introduce lesbian and gay sport to new audiences.” We’re not exactly sure why that is, but it sure sounds nice. [BBC]

    They know how to be gay and alive at the same time: just think on that little island. Rugby too: I played soccar in college, but with Arabs and Frenchmen etc.not gay,except me maybe a few more(?) Rugby is a lot more physical: you get to plow into each other vigorously.

    I wish Americans did more fun sports that everyone can do. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a Gay Rugby, or soccar league. Americans just want to drink beer and spectate like old cows.
