Upstream is a hetero-friendly LGBTI-swimclub and has approximately 150 members, both male and female, young and older. Upstream has been visible for more than twenty years in the sporting LGBTI-community in Amsterdam. They participate in Amsterdam, national and international, both gay and straight, sports competitions. They have a triathlon department, and an enthusiastic group of open water swimmers. Diversity and inclusiveness are not empty words to them. Upstream offers a safe sporting environment for its LGBTI-members. They don’t solely have locals on their boat, but also swimmers from Rotterdam and Utrecht LGBTI swimming clubs, swimmers from student swimming club SPONS and swimming club De Dolfijn.
