Who We Are

Diving For Life is a tax exempt, not for profit organization that sponsors The International Gay and Lesbian Scuba Jamboree. All proceeds from the Jamboree are donated to charitable organizations that support the health concerns of the LGBTQ community.

Birth of a Movement

One who “lives to dive” can also “dive to live.” So proved Patrick Kelly when he gave birth to the First Annual Diving For Life Scuba Jamboree in 1992. A veteran diver in love with the sport and infected with the AIDS virus, Patrick’s dream was to unite all gay and lesbian divers while raising money to fight the virus which was slowly depriving him of life.
