The Frankston Dolphins Football Club has established a monthly night for the new Queer Peninsula team

Yes, gay people like and play footy too, and even though there aren’t any openly gay AFL players yet (we’re hoping that it’s only a matter of time now), there is plenty of positive noise about eliminating homophobia in the sport and many clubs are embracing diversity in all its forms, including sexuality.

So it’s nice to see that the Frankston Dolphins Football Club has established a new group, Queer Peninsula, and are hosting QP’s, a monthly night at their club rooms at Frankston Football Oval. Every second Saturday of the month, the Dolphins will bring the rainbow to the Peninsula with a community social night, DJs, dancing, and very cheap drinks.

There are no gay clubs, pubs or special nights down Frankston way these days, so this is a welcome addition to the local calendar. It’s all not-for-profit, and it’s a clear demonstration that the Frankston Dolphins welcome queer folk of all colours. And it means that the local queeries don’t have to travel up to the big smoke to get their social fix.
