Get Involved with Gay Bowl XIX

2019 is shaping up to be a big year for New York City and the NYGFL. This year, NYC will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots by hosting the largest Pride celebration in the world, World Pride. Through the efforts of the NYGFL, we will also welcome our global LGBTQ+ flag football community to New York for GAY BOWL XIX in October!
