Men's field hockey team gets naked to fight homophobia in sports

New, 3 comments

The Nottingham field hockey team took their sticks in one hand and their balls in the other and got naked for the gays.

The University of Nottingham men's field hockey team decided to strip the message against homophobia in sports to the basics...and strip down at the same time. The team got naked for a photo shoot and video aimed to show - I guess - how comfortable they are being naked around one another?

Or maybe they didn't like the Warwick rowers getting all of the "naked athletes support gay rights too" attention so they decided it would be best to take off all of their clothes.

Whatever the inspiration, it's just great to see a sports team want to make an impact so badly that they'd run around a field with a stick in one hand and their balls in the other. It's amazing how far straight guys (not that we think they're all straight) will go today to support LGBT people.

The campaign is part of the Voice Your Rights project at the school.
