2024 Rainbow Logo Challenge

18
comments


Nothing has more impact on the LGBTQ+ community than an organization that displays the rainbow colors during June Pride month.
The Gay + Lesbian Rowing Federation (GLRF) is proud to announce the 2024 Rainbow Logo Challenge.  Rowing national governing bodies, rowing clubs and programmes, and rowing-related businesses worldwide are challenged to update their website logo and social media logo with rainbow colors or create a special rainbow logo for the month of June.

The Rainbow Logo Challenge coincides with the month of June, globally recognized as International Pride Month.  It is a time when the LGBTQ+ community celebrates their diversity and pride in who they are.

The impact of incorporating rainbow colors in an organization’s website logo and social media logo cannot be underestimated.  Featuring rainbow colors in a logo instantly conveys a sense of reassurance and welcoming acceptance from a business or organization.

The Challenge, now in its fourth year, continues to gain traction as the broader rowing community recognizes the importance of openly supporting their LGBTQ+ staff, members, and customers.  GLRF will recognize all organizations that display a rainbow logo by featuring the organizations and their logos.

We call on the broader rowing community to take up the challenge and encourage others to share in the core values of inclusion and acceptance.  This isn’t politics; it is an affirmation.

While we are on the lookout online to spot rainbow logos, we can’t discover them all.  Help us recognize any rowing-related organizations that participate by dropping us an email: rowing@glrf.info
