Brief history of GG

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.
