SPORTS AT THE GAY GAMES
Sports are at the heart of the Gay Games, and the Federation of Gay Games is at the heart of LGBTQ+ sport.
Every four years the Gay Games welcome over 10,000 athletes in 30+ sports. Any adult athlete is welcome: all genders, gay or straight, novice or elite. Participants range from rank beginners to Olympic medalists, and each individual partakes in genuine competition in an atmosphere of fun and mutual support.
The LGBTQ+ sports movement that was in large part created by the Gay Games in 1982 continues between the quadrennial sports and culture festival. The Federation of Gay Games welcomes athletes from every sport to search these pages, where they will find information about their sport, offer their own contributions to the development of competitive opportunities for their sport, and work with fellow athletes so that the range of LGBTQ+ sport can continue to grow and reflect society as a whole.
