York R I Templars

What is the goal / dream for your club?

"We want to create a sporting environment where LGBT+ People can feel comfortable, confident and welcome."

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

"We are a family. We support each other on the pitch and most importantly off the pitch."

What makes a good teammate for your club?

"Just bring yourself to the team, everyone has a place no matter who you are, everyone is important and every voice matters"

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

"Many of our team hadn't played team sports since school. Creating the club has allowed people who once avoided sports to flourish, i think that's why its important, it gives people the gateway that they were denied in school."

Do you have an LGBTIQ+ sporting hero?

"Nigel Owens"

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

"I think its the same as how everything benefits, if people are free to be themselves then they can be confident its the only way people can truly put 100 percent in."
