Adding News Guidelines

Would you like to add a news article? Great!  We would love it if you did. All submissions require approval before publication so here are some editorial guidelines:


Latest News is meant for articles that are of interest to the gay rowing community and the GLRF community.  Topics of interest might include:


  • how your club is doing something for gay rowing or being supportive of the gay community,
  • what you as a GLRF member are doing for the rowing community,
  • if your club is sending a squad or team to compete at a gay-focused regatta,
  • if your club or team is featured in the gay media.


What may not get past the editorial desk are stories that are club-centric (gay or straight) such as coming in first at such and such regatta or hosting a fundraiser or enjoying an end of season shrimp on the barbie.  We do have an outlet for that and really encourage GLRF members to explore that: create a blog on GLRF for your club!


Want to run an article idea past the editorial first? Sure! Just send a PM to glrfcentral!

GLRF hosts a booth at the 2015 WIRA Championships


Crews within 250 metres of the finish battling for first place.  View all of the images from the 2015 WIRA Championships and the GLRF booth.
28 April 2015 - Sacramento; GLRF hosted a booth at the 2015 Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships at Lake Natoma, east of Sacramento, 25 - 26 Apr 2015.  The weather seemed to be a carbon copy of the previous year, with a massive rain storm on Friday evening and then perfect weather Saturday and Sunday.  Crews from 36 clubs competed over the two day event.  University of California Santa Barbara had the most first place finishes but crews from lesser known schools like Lewis & Clark, Western Washington University, and Humboldt State University also recorded first place finishes

The GLRF booth was a crazed with people as crews snatched up the new Port and Starboard Curious shirts, the discounted Naked Rowing calendars, and the wild spandex shorts.   The Humboldt State crew that came in first in their race had all purchased wild pink zebra shorts and they were the talk of the race as the crews came down the course!

A big shout out to the 6' 5" hottie rower from UCSB who bought the GLRF Come Out and Row shirt and wore it around the regatta all weekend.
