The FGG recently welcomed to its ranks as a full member organisation the Federacion Mexicana Deportivo de la Diversidad (FMDD). This group is based in Guadalajara but is national in scope, featuring 36 sports on its web site.
Here is some more information about FMDD:
Q: What motivated FMDD to apply for FGG membership?
A: Our motivation came after the bid process for Gay Games 2022. We became truly inspired by Tom Waddell’s legacy, the Gay Games, and decided to move forward in this new project to support our community in Mexico.
Q: What does it mean to FMDD and your organization to become a member of the FGG?
A: To become a member of FGG means having the tools to better support and help our LGBTQI sports community while building FMDD. It means that we have international exposure and finally an extensive networking platform.
Q: How does FMDD plan to engage with the Federation of Gay Games in the upcoming months and years?
A: As our federation is new, all help and know-how are appreciated. Our plans include providing the FGG with information (updates, invitations, etc.) so that it may be included in the FGG newsletter. It is our main goal to increase the number of Mexican representatives in upcoming Gay Games.
Q: What events and other activities does FMDD have planned in the next year?
A: FMDD will generate in a structured and coordinated manner several sporting activities and events in various disciplines throughout the year as well as an annual National Championship.
