A new visitors’ bureau that aims to attract gay tourists to Orlando is getting things started with a bid to attract one of the world’s largest amateur athletic events, the Gay Games.

Converge Orlando Inc. is poised to announce its bid for the 2018 Gay Games at a news conference this afternoon. The international sporting expo, which, like the Olympics, is held every four years, draws thousands of athletes from dozens of countries.
