Gay Games Going to London?

The city of London is vying to host the 2018 Gay Games, six years after it would host the Summer Olympic games.

"I would like to state my support to the possibility of the Gay Games coming to London," Sport and Olympic minister Hugh Robertson said, according to the U.K.'s Pink Paper. "The Coalition Government is committed to the promotion of sport at all levels, for any gender or sexual orientation -- from the Olympics, through to grassroots, community, clubs and local competitions."

Jonathan Harbourne, founder of the London Raiders softball team, said he is coordinating the bid and was inspired by competing in Cologne's Gay Games last week.

"Many Brits came home with medals and the LGBT Sports Network is looking forward to putting on a party to welcome home all the athletes," he said. "We've come back fired-up to bring the Games to London -- taking it to the next level."

The 2014 games will be held in Cleveland.
