Gay Games 10: Paris 2018

Paris 2018 Gay Games

From 4 August to 12 August, 2018, Paris hosts the 10th edition of the GAY GAMES, the world’s largest sporting, cultural and festive event open to all!

Held every four years for more than 32 years, GAY GAMES, a hymn to love, advocates a society for all diversities. Paris is the perfect host to celebrate this 10th edition, which is expected 15,000 participants from over 70 countries! Supported by the highest French institutional and sporting bodies, PARIS 2018 prepares games celebrating diversity, respect, equality, solidarity and sharing.

Many of our member clubs, and LGBTIQ+ athletes from across Victoria, are now preparing for their Paris 2018 adventure. Registrations are filling fast, and we encourage anyone intending to compete in the Games to register as soon as possible.

If you are attending the Games, and aren’t affiliated with one of our member clubs, feel free to contact us to stay up to date with the latest Gay Games news from Team Melbourne.

About the Federation

Since the first Gay Games in 1982, the Federation of Gay Games has promoted equality in and by sport and culture and ensured that the Gay Games, the world’s largest sports and culture festival open to all, take place every four years under the founding principles of Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best™.

The Federation of Gay Games is nearly an all-volunteer organisation made up of individuals and organisations representing four continents. The Federation consists of a board of directors and an assembly of local and international organisations. These member organisations are single or multi-sport clubs and federation, cultural groups, and can be local, regional, national or international in scope. The member organisations are more than a list of groups that support the Gay Games — their delegates are actively involved in the Federation’s work and decision-making processes. All are dedicated to ensuring the continuation of the Gay Games’ decades of history of inspiration and achievement.
