It was both the Awards Night and the Closing Night of the New York City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, NewFest. After the all the awards were presented and the thank you’s uttered, the lights dimmed and soon the audience was watching rowers talk about training, sex, and the regatta. Some things never change, right? By the end of the movie, guys were naked, boats were broken, and the queerstroke (queerschlag) team had won the regatta. Such a cool movie!


As the audience filed out of the movie theater, 8 rowers were lined up, with hands-on some crisp, sharp Crew New York brochures wrapped with a GLRF sleeve, and issues of Rowing News. As the rowers called out, “Would you like to row?” and “Rowing in New York City,” all 80 of the brochures were snapped up. The crowd swarmed to Boggart’s for some drinks and chat, and to talk about the movie’s stroke technique.
