Short film on Phoenix Storm Rugby gives insight on what LGBT sport brings to participants

Phoenix Storm Rugby Football Club 2007 from Ben Avechuco on Vimeo.

An interesting look at an LGBT rugby club, the Phoenix Storm in 2007: what does playing sport do for players? Why a gay team? I particularly liked the focus on the individual players: their qualities, their character, their evolution as people and athletes.

Our thanks to filmmaker Ben Avechuco for making this film available for the Gay Games blog!
