Over the last year or so sports options for the GLBT community have been on the rise across the state. We’ve seen The Grizzlies, a new Rugby team, form right here in Nashville and more recently a new gay basketball league take shape in Memphis. Building off the momentum of this renewed enthusiasm for physical activity and team spirit, local activist Todd Hughes recently decided he was going to get in on the action and organize Nashville’s first GLBT soccer team. Todd is here with me tonight to share his progress along with fellow team member Keith Hinkle.
