Mayor of Paris thanks Federation of Gay Games

Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë who was the guest of honor of an event in Lisbon was unable to attend the reception in honor of Parisian medal winners at Gay Games VIII. FGG co-president Emy Ritt presented Deputy Mayor in charge of sport Jean Vuillermoz with a Gay Games VIII participation medal, and gave him a second medal to present to the Mayor. In this letter addressed to FSGL president Bruno Aussenac, Mr. Delanoë thanks Emy, and repeats the commitment made by Mr. Vuillermoz to support the FSGL by means of a multi-year contract.

Dear Mr. President,

During your visit to City Hall last Monday 4 October, with Emy Ritt, co-president of the FGG, you were kind enough to present Jean Vuillermoz, Deputy Mayor in charge of sport, the medal of the Cologne Gay Games, for which I thank you very warmly.

By inviting you to the reception rooms of the City Hall, I wanted to salute, beyond the individual and team performances, the fight against all forms of discrimination and homophobia and for the right to respect that the athletes of your clubs carry out all year long. Their commitment, their determination, and their talent are precious assets to defend our republican values and social harmony. You know my commitment and that of the City for the respect of the identity of each person and for the calls for equal rights for each person. I am delighted with our genuine collaboration. Please accept my best wishes and my support for future actions.
