A personal appeal to register for Eurogames 2012

A message from Jan Froehlich, secretary general of the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation: 

Dear friends,

After having spent another weekend in Budapest I feel the need to address you in order to share my impressions:

I met an extremely motivated, young, and gender-balanced organization team. I saw a charming city of artists, intellectuals, and felt a liberal atmosphere. I spent a full day walking around the city with a t-shirt stating that I belong to a "lesbian & gay" association. According to press reports, I should be dead by now, but in reality nobody cared.

Whatever happens, in two months our community will write history by celebrating EuroGames for the the first time in an Eastern European country. So far, around 2.000 athletes have registered. My biggest worry is, that some of us will miss the chance to be part of it. I call all of you who haven't register yet:  think again! Don't leave our young friends from Budapest alone! Be part of a historic moment! Register for EuroGames 2012! You won't regret it.
