Hi- I'm sharing these here because I've found a lot of people didn't know these events existed, and would have done the last one in the US (Gay Games 9 in Cleveland in 2014) if they had heard about it!

Here are some main upcoming major LGBTQ games/events. They combine sporting events, cultural events, and social events, and welcome athletes of all ages and abilities. True story- at Gay Games 9 in Cleveland Ohio, a woman broke a track and field world record in the 90 plus age group!

Events you will typically see at these types of games: 5K, 10K, half marathon, marathon, swimming, triathlon, bowling, tennis, darts, softball, golf, diving, etc. etc. Seriously all abilities are welcome, generous time limits on road races, etc.
