PickupPickup Spotlight | BGF

BGF is an LGBTQIA+ and allies Ultimate group, with players of all different experiences, backgrounds, identities, and different expressions of fabulousness.

We play pickup every Wednesday from 5:30 – 8pm at Pan Pacific Park, with 20-30 players in attendance! Pickup hours change once daylight saving time comes around (we rent out a lighted field at the park) so make sure to join our FB Group for all the latest! https://www.facebook.com/groups/biggayfrisbee/

Our goal is to provides a fun, supportive, and affordable sports experience for socially and economically diverse members of the LGBTQIA+ and Allied community.

In addition to pickup, we offer both a Spring and Fall League. Fall League 2019 starts in just a few weeks, and this year’s theme is A Star (Wars) is Born! The perfect mashup of Mother Monster and Daddy Vader for a starstruck league of Ultimate Frisbee!

We have various social activities as well, including camping trips, house parties, roller skating, community outreach, and so much more!

We also host two of the most thrilling and spirited Ultimate Tournaments of the Year. Our Tournament at the Sin City Shootout – an LGBTQIA+ sports weekend where over 7,000 athletes gather for one epic sports weekend with tournaments and parties during Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend in January! And of course, the Pridevitational! Our Beach Tournament that takes place every year during the Saturday of LA Pride! Both tournaments see around 100+ athletes from across the continent in attendance – and are filled with all the competition and spirit you could ever want in an Ultimate Tournament!

On a personal note, we all have been in that place of soul searching and seeking community. I joined BGF just over 4 years ago. Not only did I find a safe space to express every silly facet of my personality, not only did I find a fun and competitive environment to exercise my love for Ultimate, I found the best friends and most supportive community one could ever hope for. (Insert your favorite sappy heart emoji)

So come out and play with us! And once again join our FB Group so you can get all the latest!

See you on the field!
