Help send the Rogues to the Bingham Cup

Spende geschützt
We are raising funds to help The Vancouver Rogues send a competitive team to the largest rugby tournament in the world, the Bingham Cup, in Ottawa this August.

The Bingham Cup is a chance for redemption; where gay athletes compete on a world stage and represent their cities and countries. Playing and fighting for pride and to build their own self belief that they can be gay and play a hard, physical sport, like rugby. And to be champions. While the acceptance and inclusion of gay people has improved dramatically, sporting culture remains one of the last pockets where gay people feel unwelcome.

As a gay and inclusive rugby team, the Vancouver Rogues provide a safe and welcoming space for athletes to learn and play, regardless of sexuality. For many of the players, it’s their first year playing rugby or they have returned to the sport. It is confronting to learn a contact sport as an adult, even more so if there is historic trauma from being harassed in sports as a kid. The Bingham Cup is a physically demanding competition, with 80 teams competing from 20 countries.

The money raised goes towards medical support and consumables, transport & logistics and rugby gear. Many players are from lower socioeconomic backgrounds that can’t afford to go and we don’t want cost to be a barrier. Rugby has helped make our lives better in many ways and we’d greatly appreciate your support with getting to Bingham so we can properly represent our rainbow communities.
