The Head of the Charles Regatta is an international rowing event that some consider to be the largest in the world. Certainly crews from all over the world converge to vie for the coveted “Head of the Charles” designation. GLRF captured some eyeballs at the event by hosting a booth in the grand Expo Tent, adjacent to the finish line. The booth, near the center of the tent, was within easy view of the winners platform where the US Olympic Mens and Womens eight rowing teams signed autographs and overheard announcements about the ongoing raffle at the Gay and Lesbian Rowing Federation booth. Visitors from South Africa, Holland, Australia, and the UK stopped by to say hello and check out the live GLRF website on display via 3 laptops.


GLRF had displays on the Chicago Gay Games and the Montreal World Outgames. Coaches and athletes had a chance to read and learn about the National Center for Lesbian Rights’ Homophobia in Sports project, and local rowers picked up information on the Boston Bay Blades. Both the GLRF Thermal shirts and the GLRF Summer50 Henley shirts were available for purchase as well as the new rainbow socks.
