About us

The European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation was founded in 1989. We aim to:

  • fight against discrimination in sport on grounds of sexual orientation
  • stimulate integration in sport and emancipation of lesbians and gays
  • enable and support the coming out of gay and lesbian sports men and women
  • exchange information and enable co-ordination between European sport groups and tournaments
  • support the founding of new gay / lesbian / bisexual / straight / transgendered and mixed sport groups

#GaySurfBrazil - Women Surf Camp 2015 @ Florianópolis | State of Santa Catarina | Brazil
Santa Catarina, in South Brazil, is a secret Brazilians kept for many years. Known for its gorgeous beaches and mild climate it has developed in recent years as a gay and lesbian-friendly destination. Praia do Rosa, the only Brazilian member of the “Most Beautiful Bays in the World”, is famous for its perfect waves, laid-back atmosphere, its rustic-chic guesthouses and great restaurants. Due to its shape, the half-moon bay of Rosa is considered a “Disneyland” for surfers, as there is always an option for good surfing, independently of wind or swells direction.
