The Advocate's Fortune Feimster is passionate about the Gay Games

In each edition of The Advocate, a contributor shares a list of things they're passionate about:

Here’s what Fortune Feimster, a writer and roundtable regular on E!’s Chelsea Lately, is passionate about this month.

I Advocate...
the Federation of Gay Games. I love gay sports. The sports themselves aren’t gay, but there are many gay and gay-friendly sporting associations out there, and the Federation of Gay Games is made up of individuals and athletic organizations from four continents. I’ve been a member of the Greater Los Angeles Softball Association and the Los Angeles Tennis Association since 2004. In fact, I played softball in Gay Games VII in Chicago in 2006. It’s just a great way to stay active, make friends with fellow LGBT people, and build community in the process. Plus it’s not too soon to start planning for Gay Games IX in Cleveland in 2014.
