It's not a "gay" competition at all. It is centred around being inclusive and that is the key - I am certain the organisers would welcome any player that wanted to advance the push toward a more inclusive society and in particular a more inclusive sporting culture in Australia regardless of sexuality. On the Gillard thing, she appears to be opposed to gay marriage but is not opposed to equal rights for gay people as has been previously stated. The former is a specific point of contention, the latter is a very sweeping statement that doesn't assist in promoting good debate on the topic. As I said in my first paragraph, I don't think this tournament would discriminate on the basis of sexuality or any other point of difference for that matter but I do need to say that reverse discrimination is still discrimination and is equally abhorrent. Regardless of your intent, discrimination and exclusivity is never the right way to go.
