Hockey Team Strips Naked In Support Of Homosexuality (Photos + Video)

A team of 17 players from Nottingham University’s hockey club took part in a naked shoot to help combat homophobia in sport.

The men within the ages of 21 and 25 say they did it in a campaign to kick out homophobia in sports.

“It’s an important cause and it’s at the forefront of sporting issues at the moment so we wanted to do our bit.”There is a general fear of coming out (as homosexual) while in sports because others may perceive you as weak or not sporty or competitive enough.

“I just wanted to try to work to end this wrong perception and stigma.

“We hope this video will help spread the message, we’ve certainly had a great reaction so far.

“Eventually I’d like to see all universities in the country declare a zero tolerance to homophobia in sport.” Just 24 hours after being posted on YouTube, the film had already attracted more than 80,000 views.

According to PinkNews, “The men’s hockey team strip off in the video, which was produced by one of the University of Nottingham’s Students’ Union student-led projects Voice Your Rights. Voice Your Rights is a voluntary project concerned with human rights, and features the University of Nottingham’s male hockey team naked.”
