A Web-Based, Global Membership Organization


The Gay and Lesbian Rowing Federation (GLRF) is a United States nonprofit public benefit corporation registered in the State of California. The organization supports a worldwide rowing community through a web-based individual membership structure. A board of directors and a management team work together to fulfill its mission.


The Gay and Lesbian Rowing Federation (GLRF) is an umbrella organization representing the interests of gay and lesbian rowers worldwide. Its mission is to provide a sense of community, to promote the sport of rowing, to coordinate international sports competitions for gay and lesbian rowers, to act as a central resource for rowing clubs and individual rowers, to support rowers facing homophobia, and to serve as liaison to national and international rowing governing bodies and to other sports organizations.

Business Model:

GLRF relies on annual individual membership fees from its members, and donations, bequests, and sponsorships to fund its ongoing operating activities.


  1. Create a seamless worldwide online community that connects gay and lesbian rowers from every geographic location.
  2. Develop awareness and acceptance [beyond tolerance] of gay and lesbian rowers in the broader rowing community.
  3. Promote rowing in the general gay and lesbian population.

Strategic Focus: Position GLRF as a significant representative body of rowers within the broader framework of the sport.
