Gay sports groups look for new recruits

Add this share


Gay and lesbian jocks filled the patio of Amsterdam Sunday for a recruitment event hosted by the Atlanta Gay Sports Alliance.

imageThe alliance is composed of eight LGBT sports groups who were out in full force during the event offering information and signing up new recruits. Member groups include Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club, Atlanta Rainbow Trout, Atlanta Team Tennis Association, Front Runners Atlanta, Hotlanta Soccer Association, Hotlanta Softball League, Hotlanta Volleyball Association and National Flag Football League of Atlanta. (AGSA also included rodeo, but the Georgia Gay Rodeo Association disbanded in January.)

Several of the teams are preparing for new season, including softball, volleyball, rugby and soccer. Two other organizations — Atlanta Rainbow Trout and Front Runners Atlanta — offer sessions several times each week. (View the Project Q Atlanta community calendar for upcoming events.)
