Caledonian Thebans Rugby Football Club, formerly Edinburgh Thebans Rugby Football Club, is an Edinburgh-based rugby union club. They are Scotland's first gay-friendly rugby club, and currently the only one in the country.
The Caledonian Thebans is the first gay and bisexual friendly rugby club for men in Scotland. The club came to life on 18 May 2002 when Colm Cunningham, a gay man from Northern Ireland, put up a poster in the Laughing Duck, a now defunct Edinburgh gay bar. Since its beginnings the club has aimed to provide the means and facilities for gay and bi men, who are serious about playing rugby or learning the game, to do so in a safe and supportive environment. The team is primarily aimed at gay and bisexual men but is open to men of any sexuality.
