Amy & Wil were pretty chuffed to get to go to St Kilda Football Club‘s #PrideGame launch breakfast this morning. What could be more Southside than a 7am poolside champagne breakfast?

Great to see local MP and Minister for Equality Martin Foley MP, as well as VicHealth CEO (and Western Bulldogs Board Member!) Jerril Rechter, speak about the importance of inclusion and celebration in our code, and the importance of families accepting their LGBTIQ+ family members on the health and wellbeing of the queer community.

The Pride Game Ambassador this year is transgender rights advocate, Young Victorian of the Year, (and school captain) Georgie Stone.

Read the full story about the meaning, theme, and details of the day on the St Kilda FC website.

We would love, love, LOVE for the Pride game to become Pride ROUND in the coming years. Did you know that 15 AFL clubs now have LGBTIQ+ supporter groups?

Check them all out here – and if you stumbled on our page because your club doesn’t have one, you’ve got a couple of options:

  1. Become a Bulldogs fan instead – they’re a great community-focused club who have embraced us with open arms.
  2. Create your own Pride Group! Contact us and we’re happy to have a chat about how we started Bulldog Pride, and there is a myriad of other people in different states, from all walks of life who have started LGBTIQ+ supporter groups for their clubs.
