The National LGBT Sports Network held a successful sports summit today at Twickenham Rugby Stadium. This event was timed to coincide with the pre-launch of LGBT History Month, whose theme, in the run up to 2012, will be sport.
The London Gay Games Bid committee were present to answer questions on the bid and they also launched their website: www.london2018.info. In addition to news and events, this site offers ways for volunteers to support and get involved with the bid.
‘Well Fit’ sports party was also announced, an event to celebrate the participation of athletes at the Gay Games and Out Games – it will function as the closing party to the 2011 LGBT History Month. It will be held at the night club Union, in Vauxhall, London. The venue has three distinct areas, a bar for networking and sports club exhibitions, an interactive sports area for playing pool or Wii Fit, and a dance area. Tickets are on sale now from participating sports clubs and online at: http://wellfit.eventbrite.com/.
