PinkHockey and more.
Why a special website for field hockey players who are gay or lesbian? Very simple, because there is more to life than your disposition and besides, it is sometimes nice to play hockey with like minded people. What's more, is that it is always nice to have a some more hockey friends especially when they live in different parts of the world.
The International Gay & Lesbian Field Hockey Federation (I.G.L.F.H.F.), or simply PinkHockey, was launched to give every gay, lesbian or bisexual field hockey player a chance to be him- or herself on and around the hockey pitch - in every sense of the word.
PinkHockey maintains contacts with other (gay, lesbian or regular) field hockey organisations, sports organisations and federations. One of the mean goals of PinkHockey is to organize each year a Worldwide Gay & Lesbian field hockey tournament during a event like the Gay Games.
