We are athletes, artists and activists, united to support the Gay Games, “the Games that Change the World”
Since the first Gay Games in 1982, the Federation of Gay Games has promoted equality in and by sport and culture and ensured that the Gay Games, the world’s largest sports and culture festival open to all, take place every four years under the founding principles of Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best™.
Our mission is to promote equality for all, and in particular for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people* throughout the world.
We believe that the Gay Games and the movement they created and nurture are among the greatest forces for community empowerment and social change.
We hope this website will allow you to learn more about the Gay Games and their governing body, the Federation of Gay Games. Our latest news can be found on the blog page below.
*Our usage favors “LGBT” for “lesbian, gay, bi and trans”, but we do of course include in our scope of action transgender, transsexual, intersex, queer, questioning people, and of course, an essential constituency for change: straight allies. Learn more HERE.
