Photos from first day of FSGL conference in Paris

Today was the first day of the FSGL conference entitled "Sport and homosexuals, sport for homosexuals: models of integration, examples of rejection".

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.

Here is a selection of photos of the venue and the opening session:
