The Darebin Falcons and Melbourne Uni will again we taking part in the VFLW Pride Game on the 19th May 2019. The match will recognise and support the LBGTQIA+ community by celebrating inclusiveness, gender diversity, and welcoming all people no matter their sexual orientation.
Both teams will be wearing rainbow-themed guernseys and we are excited to release this year’s design. This year, the Falcons have again incorporated both the LBGTQIA+ and Transgender Flags to recognise and show support to these communities.

“With the match being played at Melbourne Uni this year, we are hoping that all of our Falcons Fans can come down, donning their rainbow gear and show their support for the LGBTQIA+ community.”
