An LGBTQ-friendly softball league in Hamilton has joined the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), becoming the only Hamilton sports league and just the third in Canada to be part of the alliance. Jeff Lindstrom, commissioner of the Steel City Inclusive Softball Association (SCISA), said SCISA joined the NAGAAA in late August. “One thing our community particularly is in need of is stability and that continuing safe space,” he told CBC Hamilton. “What this process signalled for a lot of people was … this isn’t something we want to see start with a bang and fizzle out fast. We want this to be a staple in the Hamilton community.”
