FLAG (Friends, Lesbians, and Gays) Flag Football is Boston’s premiere flag football league for the LGBTQ community and one of the largest gay sports league in Boston. Founded in 1998, we are a recreational football club playing on Saturday mornings in the spring and fall. All skill levels are encouraged to participate, and we are committed to providing a comfortable and enjoyable setting for those who want to play football and foster community. Since inception, we have grown from just 20 players in our first year to over 20 teams of 13 players in the fall of 2014.

Here are some great ways to get involved with our league:

Victory Programs’ 2015 Manny Jefferson Award was presented to FLAG Flag Football

The Manny Jefferson Award is awarded to special individuals or organizations that have demonstrated excellence in volunteerism, shown a commitment to helping those in the care of Victory Programs, and helped improve Victory Programs’ programs and services.

On Tuesday, March 24th, FLAG Flag Football was honored at Victory Programs’ 40th Annual Gratitude Dinner in recognition of the league’s continued commitment to Victory Programs — including serving Monday night dinners at the Boston Living Center, raising funds as TIPS servers at the Celebration of Life Thanksgiving Dinner, and co-hosting the annual Summer Tea Dance.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who have participated at these events over the years. We would also like to give a special thanks to Patrick Santos for his dedication, hard work, and commitment to all of our volunteerism efforts.
