What a momentus day for the #Jozicats and all our communities who came to celebrate our #equality and promote inclusivity in sport, on #HumanRightsDay.
It was a full, hot action packed day of #tagrugby, represented by the most diverse team's and all discplines of the rugby community - touch, tag and contact. Even @sa_indoor_ladies_u22 came to enjoy our #Safeaspace and celbrate with our #Rugby #LGBTIQ, member and local geographic communities in Randburg and the greater #Gauteng.
We raised the first #RainbowFlag in Africa with the brown and black stripes, to raise awareness for the atrocities and #HateCrimes such as gender based violence, corrective rape and other homophobic acts of violence, such encountered daily in the communities surrounding the #KhayelitshaCats our sisters in the Western cape. The message for change and support will continue.
We raised some money from the tournament but more importantly, we raised awareness for the causes, ideals and values we stand for and we hopefully left all those that shared the day with us, a little more informed than when they arrived.
Thank you to all our sponsors, value partners, tag team's, refs, coaches and club members for contributing to make this special day happen.
With a special mention to our brothers in arms the #DiggersMisfits and #NoFlewZone NFZ for all being a true Jozi Cat at heart!
In closing, we mirror and share @Justice Edwin Cameron, @ettasreynecke and many other members of our diverse communities, sentiments and sense of purpose in building a safe and truly inclusive South Africa, where our diversity is celebrated and every sports field and its community is a safe space. #PrideInRugby #BtheWhistle #spiritofCommUNITY #EqualityForAll #SafeSpaces #InclusiveRugbyClub #Jozicats #HomeOfInclusiveRugby
