Hilarious story of a guy who came out of the closet and realized he… likes rugby.
It is a recruitment mockumentary by Toronto’s gay rugby team—inspired by the players’ true stories—the Muddy York Rugby Football Club.
Muddy York RFC is a progressive rugby club in Toronto geared towards the city’s gay community. Established in 2003, they primarily compete against ‘straight’ teams in the Toronto Rugby Union. They also travel for exhibition matches against other gay teams, and host the annual Beaver Bowl Tournament.
“Find yourself on Toronto’s Gay Rugby Team. Coming out of the closet was the easy part.”
The video is made in association with The Corner Store and Henderson Bas Kohn, starring the boys of Muddy York RFC featuring Anthony Wallace as Richard.
