Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best: Gay Games in Cleveland show the importance of sports for LGBT people
Advances for LGBT people in sports prompts some to ask why there is a need for the Gay Games.
The Gay Games are kicking off with an estimated 8,000 athletes representing over 50 countries and 48 US states. A number of participants are coming from countries where being LGBT is difficult, if not outright illegal.
The Cleveland Foundation, the presenter of the Gay Games in Cleveland and Akron, hosted openly gay Olympic medal winner Greg Louganis, who talked about what coming out has meant for him, as well as his new documentary, Back on Board.
Tomorrow is the opening ceremony of the 9th Gay Games, presented by the Cleveland Foundation, and GLAAD is going help bring the excitement and action to you.
