The Russian LGBT Sport Federation is a legally registered organization in Russia, founded in September 2010. We currently have 500 members (62% female, 37% male, 1% transgender)from all over the Russian Federation, with an average age of 30.
We are a member organization of EGLSF and an FGG partner organization, with the intention of joining soon.
We provide our members with an opportunity to get involved in our LGBT sport clubs for badminton, volleyball, basketball, table tennis, figure skating, skiing, swimming, and more.
In our short lifetime, we have organized a number of tournaments: two international, three national and three local (Moscow, Moscow region and St-Petersburg).
We have 18 affiliated sport clubs, 11 sport sections, and 12 regional branches in various parts of the Federation: North-West (St-Petersburg, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk), Central (Moscow, Ryazan, Voronezh), Volga (Volgograd), Urals (Ekaterinburg, Tumen, Chelyabinks) and Siberia (Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul).
We are fortunate to benefit from the support of the Planet Romeo Foundation.
