Flashback to Gay Games VII: Opening ceremony at Soldier Field

Five years ago this month Gay Games VII took place in Chicago. We've just discovered this slide show of photos from opening ceremony. The person who posted this video wrote:

2006 Gay Games Opening Ceremonies, Soldier Field, Chicago. I was in the stands and took a bunch of photographs. I then assembled them as a little slide show accompanied by two of the songs that were performed during the ceremony. These are the studio recordings, not the live performances, but both of the original artists, Andy Bell and Heather Small performed these songs at the event. Hope it brings back some memories for those who were there.

The Federation again thanks the staff and volunteers of Chicago Games Inc. for these Games "Where the World Met"...
