GLRF travels to Budapest to promote rowing among gay sports groups

The first weekend of March is the occasion for the annual general assembly of the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF). Member sport teams and clubs from all over Europe gather to select the next year’s board of directors, discuss programs and issues, conduct the business of the organization, and to select the host cities for future Eurogames events. Rowing will be one of the featured sports at Eurogames 2008 in Barcelona.


GLRF attended the meeting as a guest in order to develop greater organizational awareness within the European gay and lesbian sport community. Delegates were provided with a GLRF presentation folder that provided demographics, services, and link information as well as samples of the GLRF Global Rower program.


It is surprising to find how conservative and closeted the European rowing community can be in some countries [one example in particular is Spain!] Rowers from the Czech Republic, Danmark, and Bulgaria will hopefully register soon with GLRF, and links to GLRF will appear on various sports websites.
