STEELERS: THE WORLD’S FIRST GAY RUGBY CLUB

‘Steelers’ is a feature-length documentary about London’s first gay rugby club which started in London in 1995. Following the club’s journey at the world’s biggest international gay rugby tournament, the Bingham Cup, the film explores the how a community joined together by their sexuality is transforming lives.

Told through the eyes of Australian television news reporter, Eammon Ashton-Atkinson, who moved to the UK to escape depression - ‘Steelers’ is a confronting and emotional, yet heartwarming story which explores themes of mental health, identity, misogyny and resilience.

The film’s narrative unfolds as the Steelers compete against 60 other gay teams in the Bingham Cup in Amsterdam - the World Cup of gay rugby. Along the way we meet Drew, prop by day, drag queen by night; Simon who found a much-needed support system at the club; and head coach Nic, who isn't shy of shedding a few proud tears when talking about her boys. It's an inspiring testament to the power of teamwork and friendship.

Through these heartwarming, emotional and at times, confronting stories - we learn that everyone needs a place to belong and happiness can be found where you least expect - yes, even on a rugby pitch.
