Wett Ones was the proud presenting partner for the Australian premiere of Light in the Water as part of the Queer Screen Mardi Gras Film Festival 2019.
About Light in the Water:
This inspiring, crowd-pleasing documentary lovingly recounts the origins of the West Hollywood Aquatic Club, or WH20. In 1982, a small team of dedicated non-professional swimmers began training for the inaugural Gay Games in San Francisco, creating a legacy of equality and inclusion that endures to this day. Using archival footage and extensive interviews, director Lis Bartlett paints an inspiring portrait of a tight-knit group of LGBTQ men and women who fought against homophobia in sport.
I want to thank each and every member of the Wett Ones family for making 2018 one of our biggest and best yet. With 50 new members this calendar year, our second placing in the Masters NSW tally and more swimmers swimming every week, it is indeed an exciting time to be the President of this great club.
