Several objectives have already been reached, for example, in the area of external collaborations, where the Federation of Gayt Games has made efforts to reach out to partners and stakeholders around the world, including the International Olympic Committee, EGLSF, GLISA AsiaPacific, World Masters Games, and others.
The main strategic objectives approved at the Paris meeting include:
· Establish the FGG as the pre-eminent leader of LGBT sport and culture
· Increase worldwide collaborations
· Execute the Gay Games successfully and consistently
· Achieve financial stability for the movement
Shared Marketing Efforts: As part of its efforts to share the risks and organising tasks associated with the Gay Games, the FGG continued to execute a multi-year plan to reinvest license fees paid by the Host directly into marketing events to promote Gay Games VIII, in particular by building upon the experience of the Chicago Gay Games to promote Gay Games VIII in North America.

Meeting participants included several representatives of groups located in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Blomfontein, Durban, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda.
A special session at the Annual Meeting was devoted to Gender Equity, which led to the creation of a working group that developed the FGG Gender Equity policy adopted the following year.
