What is the goal / dream for your club?

"To create an inclusive environment that allows people learn and play Rugby Union, no matter their Background, Religion, Sexuality, Ethnicity or circumstances."

It is pride month so we want to know what you are most proud of about your club?

"The fact we have been able to reach, and positively affect so many individuals from so many different backgrounds."

What makes a good teammate for your club?

"Someone who is accepting, open minded and kind to others. Our club is a safe space for everyone."

Why do you think it is important for there to be LGBTIQ+ specific sports clubs/groups?

"Often, we feel left out from sports, and specially from team sports growing up. Both by prejudices from others and from ourselves. Having LGBTIQ+ clubs allow us to learn, and enjoy sports being ourselves and without the fear of being judged."

Do you have an LGBTIQ+ sporting hero?

"Tom Daley"

How do you think sport can benefit the LGBTIQ+ community?

"Our community is at high risk of mental illness, sport, and feeling part of a team and a community helps individuals feel better within themselves and develop vital social, interpersonal and life skills."
