Chicago Gay Olympics and Montreal Outgames

Val:
Too bad I didn't make the cut for the golf competition! ;D
I could still try swimming, perhaps?

gord:
Hey Val,

Personal best and a lot fun.  I know I will not be on the medal podium but I'll certainly march out on the field for the opening ceremonies and do my fais share of partying!


Cheers

Gord

The Canuck:
Gord,

What is the difference between the Gay Olympics and Montreal Outgames ? I thought the Outgames was mostly about sports too...or Are the Outgames more cultural oriented ?

Regards,

The Canuck

gord:
Hey Canuck,

The short answer is "politics"  of the gay sport organisation running the two events.   The OUTGAMES were born from a protest. 

I love sport and I support gay sports where ever it happens.   

Respectfully, I decline becoming involved in the debate between factions.

But thanks for your interest, it's good to network with new people.

Cheers

Gord

The Canuck:
Gord,

Many thanks for the answer. Do you know what was the origin of the protest ? I'm not asking for starting a debate on this subect but rather curious to know why it simply happened.

Regards,

The Canuck
