Meet the Yorkshire Terriers, a gay football team to become the latest to strip off in a bid to raise funds for charity.

Players of the Terriers have launched their 2015 calendar in a bid to raise funds for the community team to play on and a portion to go towards tackling prostate cancer.


A statement on the team’s site reads: “Still wondering what your mum wants in her Christmas stocking? How about some Yorkshire steak? Whatever your poison, there’s a Terrier for you. Beefcake? Twink? Geek? Bear? Hot mess? Beardy? Gym bunny? Daddy? Right Said Fred? We’ve got you covered. We are real men, with real bodies, and quite the eclectic bunch.”


“Past years have seen calendars from the Warwick Rowers and the University of Nottingham Hockey Team come out in solidarity against homophobia in sport. Now that message is coming straight from the horses’ mouths as the Yorkshire Terriers continue to challenge preconceptions of sexuality and sport within and without the LGBT community. Represent,” it continued.


The Yorkshire Terriers FC 2015 Calendar is available for £10 (postage – £2 UK, £4 Europe, £5 America).

The Terriers play at the top tier of the Gay Football Supporters’ Network League, and play in a number of local fixture lists.
