The themes of today's sessions were "Homosexuals as seen by the world of sport" and "Bodies in/at play", with two panel discussions: "Can out athletes live their passion?" and "Can sport be for women?"
The opening remarks were from Thierry Maudet, director of the French national sports institute, with Monique Amiaud of the institute participating in the final panel discussion.
It's still possible to register at no cost at fsgl.org for tomorrow's sessions at Paris City Hall.
