Behind the scenes on the Pythons Pride calendar shoot

Local gay hockey team The Perth Pythons fundraising calendar has been a huge success, in fact the first print run has sold out.

But if you didn’t get one, never fear, they are now taking orders for a second print run. The club just posted a behind the scenes video from the shoot.

A combination of professional hockey players and amateurs took their kit off for the good cause, revealing all in the 2018 Pride in Hockey Calendar.

The Calendar project aims to combat homophobia by showing that everyone can play hockey.

The calendar was made in response to a statistic from the Out on the Fields study, which found that 80% of participants had experienced or witnessed homophobia while playing or watching sport.

Voodoo sponsored players, Gabi Nance, Tom Craig & Dylan Wotherspoon, who are elite athletes in the Australian Hockey program and allies of the LGBTI community, also took part in the shoot.

Since being released the calendar has garnered international attention.

Copies of the calendar can be ordered online at the perthpythons.com website.
