Chicago Celebreates GGV7 and Looks forward to GG9
Saturday, July 13th 1-3 PM
Seven years ago Chicago welcomed the world to the 2006 Gay Games. You are invited to join with fellow athletes, artists, volunteers, sponsor representatives, friends and family for the unveiling of a permanent legacy to that event at Chicago's Center on Halsted (3656 N. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL)
Former participants and volunteers are encouraged to wear their Gay Games Chicago uniforms, t-shirts, medals, pins and more.
Representatives of Cleveland+Akron 2014, the site of the 9th Gay Games, will be on hand to answer questions about that event scheduled for August 9-14, 2014. Those who register at the event will save money on their registration fees.
The event will take place on the 3rd Floor of the Center on Halsted. There is no cost to attend.
Team Chicago Athletics and Culture was part of the local organization who worked to bring the games to Chicago, hosted the games and outfitted the largest delegation in our history! The 8 day event and the two years leading into it made history and changed the perceptions of LGBT sports locally and helped it to grow leaps and bounds. Many individual lives were changed and people discovered themselves in the process! Today is the day to celebrate these achievements!
