honestly, the gay sports world has probably been my best social outlet since coming out.
I started playing water polo with West Hollywood Aquatics, and was very involved with that team for many years. Have been to 3 Gay Games (Amsterdam, Sydney, Chicago), and a few IGLA Championships.
Since moving to Boston, i started playing rugby with the Boston Ironsides RFC - heading to the Bingham Cup in Dublin in June.
So, yeah - get to meet good people in a healthy activity, outside of a bar [although rugby matches do end in drinkups...
] and travel to cool places.
I highly recommend it.
