About Rotary

Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. Club activities, social events, and volunteer projects offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections and Rotary members can extend those networks by visiting other clubs around the globe.

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. 

We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs. 

Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.

Join the Fellowship

Membership in the Rotary LGBT+ Fellowship connects you with other members of LGBT+ communities and allies within the Rotary family, allows you to join as in supporting Rotary in being an inclusive organisation, and gives access to our private members’ forum to discuss issues and things that matter to LGBT+ people in Rotary.
