To compete in the game, they had to fight their way onto the field.
400 athletes, 26 teams, one goal:
To be the next Gay Bowl Champions.
Good luck keeping these guys in the closet.
"Fascinating & Exciting!"
~The Village Voice
"It's a film that seeks to tell a story about athletes – these particular athletes – and the personal sacrifices they've made to be able to play the sport they love. But it's so much more than that. It's a film that shatters stereotypes about both athletes and gay men, and gives the world an image of gay men that has never really been showcased before."
"That's how you want life to be: people judged on their abilities and without foolish preconceptions. And if we're not there yet, this likable film at least offers several optimistic moments."
~The New York Times
"A must see for anyone who loves sports!"
"Fascinating! The film offers lively, sometimes moving character sketches and interviews amid its glimpses of practice and games; there are many spectacular catches and touchdowns, plus some first-rate trash talk."
"It manages to be both an entertaining sports profile and a story about identity that won’t make audiences a complete emotional mess. By striking this balance this film becomes an enlightening story with a message that viewers need to hear, that will also manage to leave them smiling.
A gem of a film."
"These are talented, hard-working and masculine football players who happen to be gay. Their sexuality is part of who they are but it isn't the only thing that defines them. One of the movie's chief successes is that as the movie goes on we begin to realize that these aren't just gay men; they’re men period."
"F(l)ag Football takes a candid look at the athletes, their sport, their lives and ambitions, and puts a very human and humorous spin on it, immediately dismissing any stereotypes.
4 out of 5 stars"
