As Huck magazine says, it’s a sport “which is physically grueling and dominated by women, has always embodied defiance” but the individuals on this team are just as impressive when not playing their roller derby roles. Almost all the team members are studying at the American University of Beirut and one even founded the university’s first gender and sexuality club. Find out more at Huck.
