By The Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association

The Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association is proud to announce that letters of intent to bid to host the 4thworldOutgames in 2017 have been received from:

Denver – Miami Beach – Reykjavik – Rio de Janeiro – Rome.

The first step of the bidding is now closed, and the cities will now start getting ready to make their cities shine.

“GLISA is extremely pleased to see the interest from so many diverse cities in organizing this international LGBTQ event consisting of equal parts multi-sport tournament, human rights conference and culture,” said Julia Applegate, female co-president of GLISA International.

Daniel Vaudrin, male co-president, added “we are also especially happy that they are from three different continents.”

The next step in this process is to announce a short list of bidders. This is expected to occur in the month of December this year.

In 2013, July 31 – August 11, worldOutgames III will be held in Antwerp, Belgium. The next Asia Pacific Outgames will be in Darwin, Australia, and the next North American Outgames in Denver, USA.
