“We know that there are people out there who want to play but are shy about it. Our aim is to get those people out of the golf closet and onto the golf course,” says Kristinn Jónsson who alongside Hannes Þorsteinsson has formed a new LGBT golf club.
Members of the club, which goes by the name Rainbow Golfers, intend to meet every other week this summer to practice and play golf. Beginners are welcome as well as friends, families and supporters of LGBT rights.
Kristinn also points out that sports like golf is a healthy and new way of getting to know each other outside the more typical LGBT venues like bars and discos.
