'Proud to be a Steeler' will celebrate the world's first inclusive rugby club, the Kings Cross Steelers. From the club's inception in November 1995 to the emergence of the international gay rugby scene, the exhibition shines a light on the club's achievements to date. With a stiletto trophy and international silverware taking centre stage, this exhibition is not to be missed.
Close to celebrating their 26th birthday, the Steelers have had a rainbow-coloured career. Aside from being trailblazers in the rugby community, they've have overcome a multitude of hurdles to establish a successful and competitive club, regularly fielding multiple teams at weekend fixtures and championing diversity and inclusion on and off the field. Most recently, the club have found further fame through the critically-acclaimed film Steelers.
Embodying the sport's core values of respect, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and enjoyment, the Steelers have a powerful and inspiring story to tell.
The exhibition will run from 10 September until March 2022 and it is included in the World Rugby Museum general admission tickets which can be booked online here.
