Atlanta’s gay flag football crowns its 2021 champs

Add this share
First, the LGBTQ and allied jocks of National Flag Football League of Atlanta whittled their teams down to a final four. Then those matchups found their champions in two divisions.

Just as our Opening Day photos caught the beginning of the spring-summer season in March, our gallery below catches part of the championship action and sidelines fun at Silverbacks Park on Saturday morning.

In the end, the Las Margaritas Glowjobs defeated the State Farm Stallions in the Falcons division. The State Farm Good NeighBears team was crowned champion of the United division against the Million Dollar Beckwiths.

A celebration went into an Overtime Party at Oscar’s, and it continues this weekend at the Spring 2021 Closing Party. Drag queen Phoenix hosts the Saturday afternoon fete, with NFFLA’s own queens Lauren Phillips, Aqua De’laroja and Charmaine Love-De’laorja.

The league stays busy all year. You can follow all their on- and- off-field shenanigans on Instagram and Facebook. Next up, tryouts for the Gay Bowl national tournament take place on Saturday morning at Central Park.
