Hawks Pride aims to provide an inclusive LGBTIQ supporter group that welcomes and embraces all members of the community.
The group will host regular social events, watch games together and connect with the club.
The group was created by three die-hard Hawthorn Football Club fans in 2017. The group welcomes members from diverse sexuality, gender and cultural backgrounds.
Hawks Pride will join with similar groups at other AFL clubs to form a collective organisation to represent LGBTIQ AFL supporters.
We are the female Hawthorn FC members, supporters, and friends. You do not have to be an HFC member to become a Thornbird!
We run various social and fundraising activities during the year – day, night, and weekends where possible, so everyone can join us during the year. The Thornbirds have a Glenferrie Gold membership with the Hawthorn museum; our own paver under the John Kennedy statue and will do any other donating or fundraising as required by the club.
We raise funds for the football club through our sponsorship of senior players – Jack Gunston, Will Day and Tyler Brockman, our VFLW sponsored player is Jess Trend, and we are supporting Box Hill FC by sponsoring Josh DeLuca as well.
Ovarian Cancer, a Domestic Violence Service in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, have been our main charity focuses, although last year we made Christmas decorations for Fire Victims in NSW and Victoria.
Come and join us!
