The sport of rowing is already beloved in the LGBTQ community thanks to the annual Warwick Rowers calendar, an annual fundraising publication featuring photos of the team baring it all in perhaps the greatest incentive to look forward to the first day of each new month ever conceived. To top it off, Warwick has openly welcomed their gay fanbase. Now comes news out of Belgium that one of that country’s prominent gay rowers has spearheaded a new campaign for LGBTQ inclusion in his sport. According to Evie McCullough of The Brussels Times, Ghent Rower Simon Haerinck has launched a new initiative called Same Sport, Different Sexuality and his first Instagram post on the topic quickly went viral.
