Leicester & Reading Prides

Two major English Pride celebrations are set to see players from International Gay Rugby clubs march proudly as they promote inclusivity in sport and give the IGR Summer Pride Tour of England a boost promoting mixed-gender,  #O2Touch Rugby as part of the IGR Summer Pride Tour Supported by England Rugby and O2 Touch

The Reading Renegades are gearing up for a massive Reading Pride which celebrates it’s 16th year and will be marching in the #loveunites parade which sets off from Broad Street Mall at 11:15 on Saturday morning whilst the Northampton Outlaws are not only walking in the Leicester Pride parade and manning a stall but also have a pre-season, exhibition friendly lined up against Aylestone Athletic RFC 2’s in a special feature match on Victoria Park right next to Leicester Pride itself.

 

 

Think rugby isn’t for you? Think again.

Lots of inclusive players felt rugby may not have been for them before they tried.
Some avoided sport – put off by horrible ‘banter’.
Others thought rugby would be just oh, so macho. 
Most had some worries about joining.

Too fat.  Too thin.  Too camp.  Too butch.  Too inexperienced.  Too straight even!

But inclsuive rugby thrives on difference.  
Different shapes and sizes.
Abilities.
Fitness levels. 
Different sexualities.  

So if you’re thinking about losing weight and getting fit….
Want to pick up a rugby ball for the first time or after a break….
Or, you just want to widen your friendship group……

LGBT or straight, tall & thin, short & stocky,
overweight or featherweight, 
inclusive rugby could be the new sport for you.

Join hundreds of other gay, bi and straight men 
and give rugby a try !
