I just remembered about this thanks to my local news and i thought i'd share it with you guys in-case you haven't heard about it yet! Especially with all the talk about the Olympics, i think it's important to talk about this, even though it's in August.
My hometown is hosting The Gay Games this year, which is a sporting and cultural event that is held every 4 years.
Launched in 1982, the Games invite participation from all athletes—regardless of sexual orientation, race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political beliefs, athletic or artistic ability, age, physical challenge or health status. The Games offer a safe environment for LGBT competitors and are open to anyone 18 years or older.
Anyone can register, and they are expecting 11,000 people this year.
I'm so excited! I think i'm going to volunteer to help out, and see if suhhhiance wants too as well.
