GLRF hosts a booth at the 2004 New York City pride festival. See all the pics here.
New York

It’s the annual celebration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, and New Yorkers love it. Everyone got into the act as straight and gay couples of every color, size, and combination strolled the length of Washington Street and checked out the booths.


Then suddenly the spectators came upon 5 sweep oars stretching to the sky. The winds got the best of the booth but the oars held firm as the Gay and Lesbian Rowing Federation promoted rowing in New York City with the launch of a brand new gay and lesbian rowing club, the New York Pride Rowing Association.


The booth featured displays from the Montreal World Outgames, the Chicago Gay Games, and the new gay and lesbian rowing club. To entice the visitors, GLRF featured an erg, and one that is not well known in rowing circles, a WaterRower, so the stares were all the more intense. Many people eyed the GLRF Summer50 Henley shirts and asked how they could get one. That’s easy. Become a supporting member!
