Federation of Gay Games Logo

Founded in San Francisco in 1982 by Dr. Tom Waddell, the Games have become the world’s largest inclusive sport, arts & culture event open to everyone.

The goal of the Games is to emancipate LGBTQ+ people around the world by educating people through sport, arts & culture events — in a spirit of better understanding. The Games are organised by GGHK under license of FGG.

The spirit of equality is enshrined within the principles of Participation, Inclusion, Personal Best™

The purpose of the Federation shall be to foster and augment the self-respect of anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ throughout the world and to engender respect and understanding from the non-LGBTQ+ world, primarily through an organised, international, participatory and noncompetitive athletic and cultural event held every four years commonly known as the Gay Games.
