Established in 2001 by a group of swimmers interested in attending the 2002 Gay Games. Since then we have grown into one of Melbourne's largest masters swimming clubs, competing in local, national and international events and providing an environment for GLBTIQ swimmers and their friends to participate in competitive and fitness swimming. We are committed to providing a supportive and welcoming environment for members of the LGBTIQ community to participate in swimming as a means to increasing their fitness, health and wellbeing. We believe in being inclusive of diversity in terms of skills, body type, age, gender, ethnicity and sexuality. We recognise the importance of providing a healthy alternative to the scene for social interaction and the active promotion of a positive image of the LGBTIQ community.
