who we are

Samarucs València is a club where gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and heterosexual can practice sport in an environment of tolerance and nondiscrimination. We are also open to all people who want to come to play sports with us. If you have interest in any sport, we are willing to offer our full support. Currently there are four sections: swimming, volleyball, hiking and soccer.

With the participation of our members it is our aim to add new sections, and perform other leisure activities such as cultural and gastronomic visits among others.

Samarucs Valencia was born in April 2003 when a group of guys who knew each other from the gay environment and the Col.lectiu  Lambda began to gather regularly for swimming (hence our name). Over time, new groups were created as an area of Lambda sports area. In March 2004 we became private non-profit association (leisure group) and we joined EGLSF, European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation.

In 2009 Samarucs Valencia became a sports club. Some of our swimmers participate in official federated competitions and the volleyball team is playing in the Valencian regional league for three seasons now.

We want to be a tool to make the LGBT collective visible in the sports world, an area that is still full of homophobia and, unfortunately, of people like us who do not dare to disclose their sexual orientation for fear of the colleagues and others.

Samarucs Valencia is also active in the lesbian, gay, transsexual and bisexual,at both regional and national level.  It is member of the Xarxa d'Entitats LGBT del País Valencià (Valencia network of LGBT entities) and attends meetings of national institutions and groups that are yearly organized. It is also founding member of ADI, Sports Group North America, created in 2009 by different clubs and sports groups for LGBT character of the Spanish who share goals with Samarucs. ADI is working on a broader scope and aims to highlight homophobia and LGBT visibility is not in the sports world state.
