From our series of answers to Frequently Asked Questions

As a rule, the minimum age to compete has always been 18 on the date of opening ceremony for that edition of the Gay Games.

This is usually required for insurance liability.

Children, accompanied by their parent or guardian, are welcome as spectators at cultural events, sports competitions, and ceremonies. Some Gay Games host organizations make particular efforts to offer special activities, visits, excursions, outings, for the children of participants and visitors.
