And those greater social and legal freedoms have also changed how some gay men choose to express their masculinity — and their femininity.<p>That's true for several players with the Colorado Rush, a gay rugby team in Denver. On a warm, breezy Saturday, about two dozen men in vibrant jerseys and shorts squat and lunge their way across a rugby field.
