Meet the Amsterdam Lowlanders: the only rugby club in the Netherlands organised by, though not exclusive to, gay men.
These boys have aired their dismay at Dutch royalty attending the Sochi Winter Olympics, having provided The Huffington Post with an exclusive first look inside their 2014 promotional calendar last year.
Filled with nude images of the players, funds raised through the sale of the calendar will enable the team to participate in the seventh edition of Bingham Cup, the world gay rugby tournament, in August 2014. Check out a behind the scenes video showcasing the making of the calendar above.
"What started off small is now a thriving Rugby Union team with a firm position within our home at the Amstelveense Rugby Club," the group notes in the calendar. "Besides the Netherlands, the nationalities present in the team include Lebanon, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Italy, US, UK, Ireland, Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Australia, Greece, Argentina, Romania, Spain and China."
