Ashton-Atkinson’s documentary will excite and enchant you whether you are a rugby fan or not.
In the past being gay and an athlete was considered taboo, and the two worlds did not mix with each other – especially in tough and violent sports like rugby.
“Steelers” is a heartwarming documentary about the world’s first queer rugby club. This London club started an inspiring global phenomenon of more than 60 LGBTQ rugby teams scattered around the globe.
