HONOLULU, HI — (10-09-22) — Honolulu Pride Month kicked off with a bang as the National Gay Flag Football League held its annual Gay Bowl for the first time on Oahu. This year is the League’s 20th year as an organization. October is Honolulu Pride Month.

“There were so many young gay athletes who did not have a place. There are so many people that come to this organization, and this is the first time they’ve ever played a sport, because they never felt comfortable living in their own skin in the sport and walking in their own truth,” said Dr. OT Porter-Fisher, the NGFFL director of communications.

The NGFFL has 24 grown since its founding, as it now has 24 member cities with multiple teams in each city.  Once a year they come together for Honolulu Pride Month to compete. Many have participated for years and see familiar faces each Bowl game.

According to local news KHON2, a large number of players set to walk in the Honolulu Pride Parade.
