(UK) - A charity fundraiser has set up Scotland's first gay football team.

He said: "It's for gay people who like football but who feel a little intimidated playing in straight teams. The social side is very important." Hotscots have a squad of 20 and compete in tournaments in their home city of Edinburgh. "We'd like to play against gay teams in England. There's a fair few down there."
