The Rower's Pledge InitiativeMake the pledge for inclusion and acceptance [beyond tolerance] of gays and lesbians in the broader rowing community.
The Rower's Pledge Global Initiative
The Gay + Lesbian Rowing Federation advocates for the inclusion and acceptance [beyond tolerance] of gay and lesbian rowers, coxies, coaches, and race officials in the broader rowing community. Rowers and coxies need to feel comfortable being out and open to their teammates and their coaches without fear of ridicule, bullying, reprisal, and discrimination. Coaches need to feel free to work without fear of prejudice or dismissal from parents, club officials, alumni, or athletic directors. Race and regatta officials should be able to serve openly, without fear of judgement and restricted selection for committees and race juries.
317 members of the broader rowing community from 11 countries have pledged their support!
