Wrestlers WithOut Borders

Melbourne Wranglers join WWB

Melbourne Wranglers Sydney’s Harbour City Silverbacks were feeling very energized by their experiences wrestling in recent Gay Games and tournaments in San Francisco. But they also were feeling very isolated and regretting that there wasn’t another LGBT wrestling club in Australia with who they could share the joys and challenges of training and competing.

So, being wrestlers, they set out to change all of that.

This month, the newly created Melbourne Wranglers joined Wrestlers WithOut Borders. How the Wranglers came into existence is a story of Australian determination.
