I’ve watched and supported the DC Gay Flag Football team for a number of seasons now, so the below just adds to my excitement. From The Washington Blade:
At the conclusion of season three of the D.C. Gay Flag Football League, the women players decided to play a little more football on their own. In an effort to recruit more female players into the primarily male league and to get to know one another better, the women formed the D.C. Cherry Bombs.
The League operates under National Gay Flag Football League sanctions which dictate seven-on-seven play on the football field.
“After we started practicing last December, we realized there was potential for creating a team to play at tournaments,” says founder Kristin Horgen. “We came up a little short with funding to compete in the inaugural women’s division at Gay Bowl XII held in Denver last weekend.”
