Out Games and Gay Games Possibly Forming Merger

Out Games and Gay Games Possibly Forming Merger

The two major organizations that hold LGBT sports competitions are considering a merger, according to Outsports.

The Federation of Gay Games and the Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association (which handles the Outgames) may hold a joint event in 2018. The news comes out of a meeting at the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federations last weekend in Manchester, England, where a proposal was presented for a joint event.

The third Outgames will be in 2013 in Antwerp, Belgium. The eighth Gay Games will take place in Cologne, Germany, July 31-August 7. The following Gay Games event is slated for Cleveland in 2014.

Global economic issues may contribute to a merger, as the competitions have had some problems sustaining funding.
