Gay polo tournament in South Florida this weekend

The Third Annual International Gay Polo League Tournament is this Saturday, April 14, at the Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, Fla. The club is the birthplace of polo in the United States. The tournament features four teams, each one led by a professional player. From the South Florida Gay News:

“Overall, the established polo community — a long and deep community — has been extremely encouraging to the Gay Polo League,” said Chip McKenney, founder of the GPL. “That’s a pretty wonderful thing. I wasn’t expecting their support, but they have given it.”

It's pretty cool to see a sport like polo, perceived to be stuffy and conservative, embrace an event like this.

McKenney also told the newspaper that when he moved to Los Angeles there were 12 gay bars...now there are two. Ummm...I don't know where he's looking, but I can assure you there are more than two on one street corner.
