the team

We're proud to make up Quins Pride first committee, and we're excited to meet you!

Emily Hamilton - Co-chair

Emily has been a Harlequins supporter all her life (with a Wasp for a dad, it was inevitable!) - She hopes to help build Quins Pride into a real part of the Harlequins family.

Making The Stoop an even more welcoming environment for everyone, whoever they support is a priority for the founding Quins Pride committee and I'm thrilled to be the first Co-Chair working with some amazing Quins fans.

When the six nations comes, Emily is cheering for Scotland - Wha's like us?

Jack Duncan - Vice Chair & Comms Lead

Jack is a Harlequins season ticket holder (South stand for life!) and never misses a game if he can avoid it. As a passionate LGBTQ+ rights campaigner Jack is thrilled to see the club he loves blaze trails by being the first world rugby club to launch such a group, and knows Quins Pride can set an example for others to follow.

He is honoured to take up the mantle of Comms Lead on the first Quins Pride committee, and is looking forward to spreading the word of this important (and exciting!) work throughout rugby, whilst working closely with other clubs and LGBTQ supporters' associations across other sports.

Jack has been thrilled with the hugely positive response to the launch of Quins Pride from the club's fans, and believes this serves to highlight what an inclusive and welcoming club Harlequins is.

When not in the stands at The Stoop, or watching England across the road at HQ, Jack works in the travel industry, and supports Liverpool FC (because no one's perfect!).

Abigail Barletta - Hon Sec & Events Lead

Abigail has been a season ticket holder at Quins for twelve years. She started watching rugby however when she was 4 going to games at Richmond FC. She first started watching Quins when they were in the 1st Division and is an avid Quins supporter. She is also on the Quinssa Committee working on social media.

Abigail has always been passionate about LGBTQ rights and aims to help Quins Pride spread it's wings and become an important part of the club. She is delighted to see Harlequins becoming the first club to set up an LGBTQ Supporters' group. She hopes other clubs will follow suit and Quins Pride will be an inspiration to other rugby teams across the country.

Inspired by the inclusivity of rugby she joined Barnes Women's Rugby Team who train weekly and run their own socials. She can be found on the weekends when Quins aren't playing at home, watching Richmond Rugby (her grassroots club where she developed her passion for the game). She is an avid follower of the laws of Rugby and wants to try her hand at refereeing. Aside from rugby Abigail is a musician and sings with the WEMC (West End Musical Choir). She also enjoys spending time with family, friends and her two dogs, writing and keeping fit.
