International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia

We are an inclusive bunch and welcome diversity.

Friday 17 May is celebrated as the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia. The date commemorates the World Health Organisation’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder and aims to promote human rights and respect for those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms. 

From our perspective – The WVSC Masters invites older LGBTI folk to join us for a bit of football fun. You don’t have to be over 35 years, though if you’ve reached or are near that milestone, you’re in our target group. Training and games on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm at The Mint, Deakin.

To be clear, this is a social get together so it’s all ‘at your own risk’. For your safety, please bring football boots and shinpads. Respect your limits. Anyone who wants to get real serious can talk with the convenor about signing up and playing competitively for the masters at our tournament in October this year or next winter season. The Club is currently fielding four men’s teams in the ACT competition this year, two in the O45 age groups and two in the Over 35. Upcoming 2019/20 football trips in development include Huskisson, Adelaide and Kensai, Japan.

You can contact Gerard (0403 932 479) if you have further questions.
