FAQ / Why isn't my sport on the program for the Gay Games?

From our series of answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Sports programs at Gay Games are proposed by potential hosts, based on a list of sports developed by the FGG.

These include "core sports", a certain number of which are required for bidders, and "additional sports", which are automatically approved for possible inclusion in a sports program. Bidders can also propose new sports not yet on either list (for example, rodeo, which will be on the program for the first time at Gay Games 9 in 2014).

For the list of current sports, as well as sports for which an interest has already been expressed, visit our website HERE.

The best way to get a sport on the program for the Gay Games is to approach bidders for the next edition. And the best way to get a bidder to include your sport is to be organized. We can help sports for which there is no international LGBT sports organization. If you are interested, write us HERE.
