Background: “I actually found the swim team prior to moving to Washington D.C. four years ago,” says Jason Bricker, captain of DCAC. Bricker, a competitive swimmer since the age of six, says he was looking for a group that was social as well as competitive. “It was little bit intimidating at first because I had never done anything completely gay.” Bricker says the team really helped put him at ease. “[They] are always there for each other on the competition level as well as the social level. Everyone was very supportive.”
