June 2016 Grandstanding: Letters to Compete

Swim Time  (May 2016)

Saw the article in Compete that just came out. Nice work! This is perfect timing.

As you may know, recently the International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics (IGLA) reached out to U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) who hosted their National Championships in Greensboro, N.C. We didn’t ask them to cancel the two-year previously selected and planned event, but rather we made a public statement condemning N.C.’s HB2 law, making sure that future USMS Nationals bids not be awarded to states with anti-LGBT laws in place.

Also, one of our members made t-shirts that were distributed and worn at Nationals promoting love not hate. They were a hit!
