A Letter from The Owner, James Kennedy
James here; the owner of Rugby United New York. Very excited and proud to announce we are hosting our Inaugural Pride Night this Saturday, April 20th and we need your support. The game between Rugby United New York and The Utah Warriors kicks off at 7.30pm.
We will be kicking off by having the Gotham Knights vs DC Scandals from 5.30pm. Both are IGR (International Gay Rugby) teams and they’d love your support.
The game itself will be broadcast nationally on CBS. On top of that we have:
· The Gay Men’s Chorus singing the National Anthem · Fundraising for The Center. The Gay Center does so much for the community in the form of advocacy, support, education; we are going to be fundraising on the night and going forward.
Additionally, our players will be wearing rainbow laces and the arena will be decorated in RUNY Pride Flags. These flags will be signed and auctioned off to raise money for The Center at the end of the season.
The main nationally broadcast event is RUNY against The Utah Warriors and we need you there to show support for the team and for our LBGTQ Community. We want to send a message to all biased communities around the world that the excuse of traditions as a means to discriminate against members of our rugby family will no longer be tolerated.
Rugby United NY stands shoulder to shoulder with our IGR partners and want the LGBTQ+ community to know that rugby is a place they will always be welcome and safe.
