London Knights: The UK’s only competitive gay men’s basketball team

The London Knights are the UK’s only competitive gay men’s basketball team.

Formed in 2000, the team was originally an offshoot of the lesbian team The London Cruisers.

But the men soon started competing internationally and have won multiple titles across several international Gay Games competitions.

It’s that legacy they want to build on, by hopefully joining the more mainstream London Metropolitan Basketball league.

The members hope that one day, there will be enough LGBTQ+ teams to form a league of their own.
