Different Strokes Dragon Boat Club Mardi Gras Open Day 2016

  • 1 Bank Street Pyrmont Australia

As part of the 2016 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival, Different Strokes Dragon Boat Club will be holding a free Open Day dragon boat paddling session on Saturday 27th February 2016. The aim of the Open Day is to introduce the sport of dragon boating to our LGBTI community. Participants will get to experience the fun of paddling a dragon boat for approximately an hour. At the end of the paddling session, participants will enjoy a sausage sizzle and have a chat with our members.

Different Strokes is a Sydney-based club that was formed in 2008, with the aim of providing a social and fitness-focused sporting outlet for the gay and lesbian community, as well as their friends, family and supporters. After years of continuous improvement, we are positioning ourselves as more than just a social club. Our race crews have continued to raise the bar at regattas, with wins and placings in finals, as well as member representation at both the state and Australian level. Our club's strongest asset is our team spirit. We paddle with a collective determination to challenge stereotypes with our successes, showcase diversity by increasing our visibility, and spark positive change through our actions.
