Congratulations and thanks to Wellington Outgames!

Dear David, Virginia, Hamish, Karen, and Eve,

On behalf of the Board and Assembly of the Federation of Gay Games, we would like to congratulate you and your team, including your many volunteers, for making the 2nd AsiaPacific Outgames such a success.

Our representative Kate Rowe has told us of your warm reception and how readily you responded to her requests for support. She was impressed at how well the event was organised, particularly the accreditation that she witnessed first hand. She greatly appreciated the whole atmosphere of these Games, with 1300 participants coming together in a harmonious fashion and with a unique Maori flavour.

She also noted how well the sports were run, and how much joy she felt seeing so many smiling faces and participants from fifteen countries, mingling and meeting old friends or making new ones.

Your passion for your city and your willingness to work hard to achieve your goals was evident, and is promising for the future of LGBT life in Wellington, in New Zealand, and in the entire region.

As GLISA AsiaPacific works toward the 3rd AsiaPacific Outgames, we hope to continue to be part of the growth of LGBT sport and culture in the region, and build on the relationship you have been so helpful in developing. And on behalf of our hosts for Gay Games IX we thank you for the opportunity to tell Outgames participants about the warm welcome they will receive in  Cleveland in 2014, where we hope to see you all!

Once again, many thanks for your hospitality and for your work to promote the fundamental human right of all to participate and enjoy sport, culture, and camaraderie.
