The LGBT Rotarians and Friends Fellowship is a group in the family of Rotary, dedicated to promoting global friendship, service and education. The fellowship aims to create an inclusive, understanding and welcoming community, fostering goodwill and peace, and realising a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for LGBT+ people.
LGBT Rotarians and Friends Fellowship
The LGBT Rotarians and Friends Fellowship connects members of the Rotary Family and works to build an organisation that is welcoming to members of the LGBT+ community. We work to connect members in friendship, educate clubs to be more inclusive and build a catalogue of service projects that support the LGBT+ community.
The Fellowship is also available as an LGBT+ advisory group, contributing to and consulting on practices to be an inclusive club, policy development and projects of significance to the LGBT+ community. Contact us for advice.
