Hey, wanna row?

Drinks With Rowers is an international programme to promote rowing in the gay and lesbian community. Each event will showcase rowing in a multimedia format, with streaming media, and dynamic displays. In addition, there will be information on learn to row programs for ALL local rowing clubs that wish to participate.

These events are intended to help support the local rowing programmes by bringing the gay and straight communities together.

GLRF is now seeking nominations for future city events: dates and locations. Please contact the GLRF Director of Promotion & Publicity, p2dir(a)glrf.info

Photographers and galleries are welcome to contribute content and space

Chicago 2005 Event

Stop by our booth

GLRF hosts booths at major worldwide regattas to develop awareness of our organization among gay and lesbian rowers as well as the broader rowing community. GLRF booths also serve to create a visible presence among the chief influencers within rowing: parents, coaches, teammates, and race officials, and thereby make an acknowledgement for the need for inclusion and acceptance [beyond tolerance] of gay and lesbian rowers at all levels of the sport.

At each booth, visitors find information on the Gay + Lesbian Rowing Federation, shop for GLRF Gear, and learn about upcoming regattas and clinics promoted by GLRF.

The GLRF presence at regattas depends on donations and membership fees. Would you like to underwrite a booth at a regatta? Contact the Director of Promotions and Publicity, [p2dir (at) glrf.info]
