FGG at Forum FSGL

The Federation of Gay Games thanks member organization Fédération sportive gaie et lesbienne for their kind invitation to the 3rd Forum FSGL, a fair during which FSGL member clubs present themselves to potential members, alongside other organizations such as the Paris LGBT center, SOS Homophobia, and AIDS-prevention organizations, as well as other sports organizations.

Thanks to Emy Ritt, Sonia Abécassis and Marc Naimark for staffing the Gay Games booth.

Before the sports demonstrations from member clubs, a panel discussion on women in sport was held, featuring Sous les shorts des filles, the FSGL's women's group.
Among the speakers was FGG co-president Emy Ritt, who spoke on ways to promote women's participation in sport. She took as an example the communication tools of Games Cologne to promote women's participation, highlighting the need to show women in the event. She also spoke of the Women's Space at Gay Games VIII, and the need to promote an institutional presence of women.
