On Friday 24 September, the French medal winners from Gay Games VIII were the guests of Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, minister for health and sport, at her ministry in Paris.

During the reception, Emy Ritt, co-president of the FGG, presented Mme Bachelot with a participation medal from Gay Games VIII, as a sign of the thanks of the Federation for her support of Equipe France and the LGBT sports movement.

We'll have video and the texts of the speeches made very soon, but in any case, this was a first for LGBT athletes in France, and a great honor that was appreciated by all present, and those who couldn't make it, in particular our friends from the provinces.  A particular word of thanks to Ronan Le Joubioux, an advisor to Mme Bachelot, and a friend to the fight against homophobia in sport and in society.
