As a predominantly gay and lesbian organization, we seek to promote self-respect within its members and mutual respect and understanding within the team and the general community. To achieve these goals, no person shall be excluded on the basis of race, national origin, age, gender, religion, political affiliation, marital status, health, sexual orientation, gender identity, or athletic ability. We believe it is a fundamental principle to be open and inclusive in all activities, social and competitive. We come together most weekends to promote the best of camaraderie. Our focus is to provide a positive, social, welcoming environment through the team characteristic inherent to football while capturing the athletic and competitive nature of flag football.
