Steelers: The World’s First Gay Rugby Club

Documentary, Sport 1h 20m 2020

‘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.
