Steelers

Bullied from a young age for being gay, Eammon Ashton-Atkinson moved to the UK in search of a better life. He found his tribe in the form of the Steelers, the world’s first gay rugby club.Proving that being gay and playing sport actually does mix, Eammon decided to document the club as it took part in the world tournament of gay rugby - The Bingham Cup.Eammon’s journey is a testament to the power of friendship and teamwork and shows that, even though attitudes seem to be changing, the fight for acceptance will never be over.www.steelersthemovie.comStory by Sandra SullyProduced and edited by Ali Aitken  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
