The Gay + Lesbian Rowing Federation is a worldwide online, inclusive community for lgbtq+ outdoor and indoor rowers, coxies, coaches, and race officials.


However you participate in the rowing community, be it through a regatta or national rowing association, with a regular club, on a school team, as an independent sculler, or on a national training team, GLRF provides a means to connect all of us.
