Paris Will Host 2018 Gay Games

By Charlotte Robinson, October 08, 2013
In the midst of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics controversy the international delegates & board of directors of the Federation of Gay Games voted to hold the 2018 Gay Games X in Paris, France. The three finalist cities were Limerick, London & Paris. The meeting was held in Cleveland where the 2014 Gay Games will take place presented by the Cleveland Foundation next summer on August 9th through the 16th. David Killian, co-chair of the FGG Site Selection Committee stated, “The vote is the result of dozens of individual choices, but some points stood out for many voters. Paris proposed a wide range of sports in quality venues, many of which offer good visibility for the event. French LGBT sport organizations already have a great deal of experience hosting international multisport tournaments & their LGBT community presents outstanding cultural events. They are already well advanced in planning, for example, with the designation of a dedicated sports manager. They arrived with demonstrable political support, including Minister for Sport Valerie Fourneyron & five-time Olympic fencing medalist Laura Flessel, who were part of the presentation team. And of course Paris is a great destination to visit or revisit.” As you know France passed gay marriage on May 17th of this year. Gay & lesbian couples began to legally marry in France on May 29th.
