Federation of Gay Games
The FGG was founded by Tom Waddell, who competed in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics in the decathlon. FGG is the governing body of the Gay Games, the largest international sport and culture event open to all, celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. Gay Games 9, the next edition of the quadrennial Gay Games will bring 11,000 athletes and artists to participate in more than 30 sport and culture events in Cleveland, Ohio, in August 2014.
The Federation brings together international LGBT sports and culture organisations, regional multisport organisations (“city teams”), and a variety of local organsations. Their task is to choose the host of the Gay Games, to support our host committee’s execution of the Games, and to promote the FGG’s mission of equality through sport and culture.
The FGG is pleased to launch “From Games to Games“, an invitiation for Olympic athletes, coaches and support staff to participate in Gay Games 9 in 2014.
We support the Atlanta Plus Committee’s call for gender equity and equality in the Olympic movement.
