Event Details

West Hollywood Aquatics (link) and the Long Beach Grunions (link) have joined forces to host The International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics 2022 in Greater Palm Springs, California, home of the LGBTQ+ community in the desert. Mark your calendars for Swimming, Water Polo, Exhibition Artistic Swimming, and, of course, the Pink Flamingo, to keep it simple, unless you want more, and we will be offering more before, during, and after we drip dry under the sun. After all, the average temperature is 87°F in April, though no promises. It could be hotter as you meet and greet and compete. We hope to see you there.

Artistic Swimming

Artistic Swimming is beauty in the water based upon athletic skill, grace, synchronicity, and the ability to stay underwater for unreasonable amounts of time while working amazingly hard and making it look easy. That is why we want to applaud artistic swimmers and celebrate the sport with an artistic swimming exhibition at IGLA 2022.

  • Where: Palm Springs Swim Center
  • When: April 10, 2022
  • Time: Sunday afternoon after the championship water polo games and before The Pink Flamingo.

Artistic swimmers wishing to participate may apply for open performances times in the following categories:  solo (2 minutes), duet (3 minutes), team (four to eight people) (4 minutes), and/or free combination (four to ten people) (4 minutes). Availability for open performances is limited based upon time availability and subject to invitational exhibitions extended by IGLA 2022.
