Told through the eyes of an Australian television reporter who moved to the UK to escape depression, we learn that sometimes you can find happiness where you least expect. We follow the journey of 3 characters in the club: the lesbian coach fighting misogyny, even in the gay world. The semi-pro player who spiraled into a depression after his coming out didn’t go as planned. And the prop who discovered he was a drag queen through the club.
User Reviews: A great documentary that captures the journey for many gay men, through the eyes of a few players from the world’s first gay rugby club.

The journey towards belonging is poignant and is one that everyone in the cinema related to, in what was a very vulnerable and honest portrayal. Not a dry eye around.

A recommended watch for anyone wanting to relate to someone (or themself) coming to terms with being gay. Thanks team 🙂
