Commonwealth Games + Matthew Mitcham = Gay Games in India?

Matthew Mitcham and Warren Ethan in 3m synchro event at Commonwealth Games
From a column in India's Mid-Day.com:

[New Dehli's] Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community apparently, could not egg on out gay diver Matthew Mitcham to a gold. The Olympic gold medallist had to settle for silver, but for the gay community, Matthew is still, hopefully, their icon. Which brings one to think whether India would ever host a Gay Games? Not many people had thought India would have Gay Parades but they are here now. A Gay Games? Some day on the desi [South Asian] horizon, maybe.
