The biggest sports and cultural festival in the world will take place in Cologne, from July 31 to August 7. Some 10,000 participants from more than 70 countries will converge for the Gay Games.
The motto is “Be part of it!” and the invitation is open to everyone – gay, straight, bi, male, female, transgender or transsexual, and regardless of religion, nationality, ethnic heritage, political convictions, athletic skills, physical capabilities, age or physical condition.
Some of the competitions we’ll be covering include In-line Skating, Volleyball, Basketball, Handball, Soccer, and Wrestling. Hosting the coverage will be comedian Bridget McManus. She’ll also be sending us reports from The Colour Party (Opening gala), Triumph & Temptations Party, Women Place (the official info and meeting point) and, of course, the OML Theatre Nights.
You can watch it all here because we’ll be reporting on the Games thanks to a partnership with OneMoreLesbian.com.
On Wednesday, August 4th at 3pm AfterEllen.com, OneMoreLesbian.com and eurOut.org will be co-hosting a meet-up with Bridget McManus, Saskia Joreen (Editor in Chief of eurOut.org) and Sandra Showtime (COO of OneMoreLesbian.com) at the WomenPlace in the Neumarkt, the official Gay Games center.
