Vancouver magazine looks back at Gay Games III

The magazine "Living Out Vancouver" recently ran a wonderful article saluting the 20th Anniversary of 1990's Gay Games III. This was the first time that the Gay Games was held outside San Francisco and the USA. This article gives the history of how the event came to be in the Pacific Northwest and includes a fascinating description of the political climate of the late 1980s. The photos (some of which were sourced from the Gay Games Photo Archives) really bring that magical week of August 1990 to life.

If you were in Vancouver in 1990, this article will bring back great memories. If you didn't participate in Gay Games III, you can read about a very important chapter in the history of the Gay Games movement.
