"The anticipation for the opening ceremony of the Gay Games VIII Cologne 2010 is immense.

"Not only for the organizational team, also for the artists, who will perform Saturday, July 31 at the two and a half hour long show in the RheinEnergieStadium on stage. “I am happy to perform for people who want to convince through athletic performance and stand up for equal rights for homosexual people” says Taylor Dayne. The American singer will sing the official hymn of the Gay Games, “Facing a miracle” at the opening ceremony.

"Also for the Swedish pop singer Agnes Carlsson the appearance at the Gay Games Cologne is something special. “Many gays and lesbians supported my career from the beginning. It´s a great honor for me to perform at the opening ceremony”, says Agnes. She will sing her top hit “Release me”.
