It really help me to find new LGBTI+ friends when I moved to Melbourne. I’m so glad I found the club

I played footy growing up in my hometown. As I was growing up I left the game because I felt that I wouldn’t get the acceptance from my club for being gay. The Torps have given me that confidence to be myself.

The Torps have enabled me to reconnect the game and meet new friends in a healthy and active way. Love the team.
