Aberdeen Taexali Rugby Club is an LGBTQ+ inclusive rugby club based at Woodside Sports Complex in the north east of Scotland, and is one of four inclusive rugby teams in Scotland that cover Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Dunfermline.
The club was founded in 2018, and since then has grown to become a key pillar in rugby in the north east, and for the local LGBTQ+ community.
Aberdeen Taexali’s mission is to help break down barriers that exist for people who ordinarily might not get involved in sport, whether that be because of sexual orientation, race, gender, age or prior rugby experience.
The club is proud to provide a safe, inclusive and active space in the sport of rugby union.
Aberdeen Taexali is an affiliated club with Scottish Rugby – Scotland’s governing body for rugby union, and International Gay Rugby (IGR) – a network of over 100 inclusive teams worldwide.
