    Anyone know if there's an LGBT triathlon club in So. Calif.? Haven't been able to find anything on google.

    Just to be clear, the DC Tri Club is not an LGBT club. In fact, it would be described as predominantly heterosexual in membership, but has always been inclusive. The club has club-wide and regional happy hours each month. The board of the club has been very supportive of LGBT and friends happy hours (in fact, they occasionally prompt us to organize these) and puts them on the club calendar of events.

    So if you're part of a larger triathlon club, why not push for the occasional LGBT and friends happy hour for members of the club?

    I'll probably have to go that route. I'm just surprised that where I live, Orange Country in So. Calif, I haven't been able to find any LGBT sporting clubs for the spots I'm into (cycling, swimming, running, tris, ski/boarding). There are some clubs out in LA, a few in Long Beach, and San Diego, but none in OC. Was hoping to find something as an avenue for connecting with other athletes who happen to be gay.

    Yeah I haven't found a gay tri club in SoCal. Would be great if there was one.
