San Francisco/Hong Kong, 11th November 2019

130+ delegates, Honorary Life Members (HLMs), and observers of the international Federation of Gay Games (FGG) from 23 countries recently participated in the Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Guadalajara, Mexico from October 31 - November 2, 2019. The AGA was a great success!

The Hong Kong Team delivered two sessions to update members on the current state of planning for Gay Games 11. One presentation on the current situation in Hong Kong and the other outlining the progress of the Hong Kong team for the 2022 Gay Games.

While we fully recognize the troubles in Hong Kong continue, the FGG Board and the attending members are leaving Mexico committed to the Gay Games in Hong Kong which will be a spectacular sports and cultural event that will kickstart and foster LGBTQ+ connections among our communities in the city and region.

This will be the largest LGBTQ+ sports and cultural event ever held in Asia. 12,000 participants, 36 sports, and 20+ cultural events will take place over 9 days in November, 2022.

“Hong Kong is an opportunity to make a positive political statement by doing something that is fun and non-threatening and which can change peoples’ perspectives of what it means to be LGBTQ+,” said Gene Dermody, a participant in all ten previous Gay Games.

We believe in the power of unity that comes from diversity. The Gay Games 11 tagline, Unity in Diversity, is an extremely relevant message not just for the Gay Games but for Hong Kong at this difficult time.

2015 IGLA Annual Meeting


The IGLA AGM will be held in the large conference room at Eriksdalsbadet. Upon entering the pool complex, go up the stairs directly in front of and turn to the right. Walk behind the spectator stands past the diving / warm up pool all the way to the end and the conference room will be on your right.

*** Update***

The meeting time has been updated.  The coach’s meeting will begin 30 minutes after the end of swimming competition on Wednesday.  The annual meeting will begin immediately following the coach’s meeting.

***Swimming Schedule Update***
Working with Eurogames and the meet officials to overcome last minute and unforeseen scheduling conflicts, we came up with the best compromise we could to avoid scratching swimmers from events.  We realize the timing of the announcement is not ideal but as we worked towards a workable solution we have agreed upon the following.
The 400, 800, and 1500 free will be swum two to a lane.  The 800 free will be moved from Friday to the Thursday afternoon session.  Swimmers who have registered for both the 800 and 1500 free will need to select one of the two.  We understand this is not ideal.  Warm up on Thursday and Friday will start at 7:30 am, with the meet start time at 8 am.  The SCM pool will be open for warm up/warm down for the duration of the meet.
Relay entries are to be entered an hour prior to the start of the competition on the day they are held.  Relay cards have been previously sent out and will also be available at the pool.
Thank you for your understanding. Additional information will be provided at the IGLA annual meeting.


The 2015 IGLA Annual Meeting has been set for August 5, 2015 at the Eriksdalsbadet swimming center. The Annual Meeting will take place after the first day of swimming on competition on August 5th at 3:00 PM local time.
