The info is not new but the first press conference presenting the event took place yesterday in Stockholm: the Swedish capital will host the EuroGames, the European Gay & Lesbian Championships, one of the biggest LGBT events in the world, from 5 to 9 August 2015.
These games were organized for the first time in 1992 in The Hague. The event is likely to attract 5,000 participants and more than 200 000 visitors. The EuroGames are ment to fight discrimination, encourage integration, and to promote and support the right to pursue one’s sport independently of sexuality.. They are open to all.
The sports program will offer around 25 sports. There will also be a cultural program, with a large number of exhibits, activities and a film festival. The political program will include a conference, seminars and lectures.
The city of Stockholm is one of the most gay-friendly destinations in Europe. And the municipality supports the event : « Stockholm is known worldwide as an open, welcoming destination. The EuroGames Stockholm event is completely consistent with Stockholm’s aim to be one of Europe’s leading event cities. We are happy and proud to be able to support EuroGames Stockholm, says Regina Kevius, Stockholm’s sports commissioner.
