Documentary Steelers: The world’s first gay, inclusive rugby club Kings Cross Steelers, the world’s leading gay and inclusive rugby team from around the UK, will be notable.
The Oval Balloon is the focus of a Pioneer Association. Directed by Emmon Ashton-Atkinson, Steelers: The world’s first gay, inclusive rugby club As the title of the feature film suggests, the Steelers are the world’s first gay and lesbian rugby team to promote athletes. Founded in London in 1995, it highlights the values of diversity, respect and tolerance that are largely non-existent in the sport.
Seen from this vibrant first trailer, the voices of three key people associated with the documentary Steelers are brought together: Nick Evans, a former international player who has become a coach fighting sexuality in a male-dominated sport; Simon Jones, a rugby fan from Birmingham; Finally Andrew McDowell, a player wants to be the queen of drag. Singular and inspiring portraits that sensitively express the Steelers’ call for a better life.
