Kaia Wilson on her Gay Games VIII experience

From an interview with musician and table tennis player Kaia Wilson in AfterEllen:

AE: How did you get involved in the Gay Games?
KW: Well I got into ping pong, like, heavily into it, competitively, and someone said I should compete at the Gay Games. I researched it and then decided to make it a goal.

AE: Is it something you’re going to do again?
KW: I had an incredible time on so many levels. It was sweeeeet to go to Germany, and I did a solo tour before the Gay Games started, which was amazing. I loved meeting and competing with international queers! I loved the sense of community and the level of serious training people had done to prepare for their sport. The gay table tennis nerds are pretty much the same as any table tennis nerds anywhere! And I have a ping pong blog if you'd like to check it out: spinslayer.com.
