South East Europe initiative at Eurogames

From Queer Sport in SEE:

For the first time athletes from most countries from the region of South East Europe will take part in EuroGames at it's 13th instance next week in Rotterdam. This is both major exception after 12 instances of EuroGames and 2 decades since these countries formed in western Balkans as independent states.

Pioneering effort in networking and organizing was done in past year to make this development happen. LGBTQ sport initiatives and individuals from the region have been coordinating personally, informally, on-line and off-line, but will be meeting each other for the first and also presenting themselves to the larger LGBTQ international scene next Thursday.

Initiated by qSPORT (Croatia) and developed through the effort of handful of individuals/activist organizations from the region and with support of EGLSF, GLISA, EuroGames Rotterdam, COC-Rotterdam and Dutch Embassy in Sarajevo - this finally became possible.

Please join us and meet at Roodkapje.org ( at Meent 125, MAP HERE) an exceptional queer cultural space with bar, buffet and gallery on next Thursday at 18h and have a chance to meet new LGBTQ sport people from the edges of Europe - where being gay is less about homosexual orientation and much more about being queer in societies that does not tolerate differences.

Please distribute this info to your friends and club members who might be or know someone from South East Europe diaspora, that might be interested in supporting this pioneering activity - maybe even willing to join these few individuals in the future to make stronger presence in the future of international LGBTQ sport and their local communities.
