She gave the iconic performance at the Gay Games I Opening Ceremony in 1982.

The entire global Gay Games community is saddened to hear of the passing of long time ally and iconic legend Tina Turner. We are grateful that Ms. Turner was the featured entertainer at Gay Games I (also called the “first Gay OLYMPIC Games") at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco on 28 August 1982.

Tina Turner's performance was referenced numerous times in the 40-part "Passing The Torch" series published by the FGG in 2022 as part of the 40th Anniversary celebration. To read some of those comments from post #32, click HERE.

Below are some photos of Tina on the stage in 1982 at Gay Games I.

Rest in power. #GayGames #GamesThatChangeTheWorld
