Outgames 2006 Montreal

It’s really pleasant to see people proud of their city because of its human rights support. I could see that during the opening cerimony for the firsts Outgames in Montreal. This event is a mix from olympic games, conferences and cultural activities focused in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities, but open for everyone.

I'm getting balls for the beach volley in the Outgames :)
I’m getting balls for beach volley matches in the outgames! 🙂

Actually I’m working for the Outgames as volunteer. I’ve been in the opening cerimony to guide the Puerto Rico athlets, and last days I’m involved in the beach volley, volleyball and hockey games.

I’ve read some news about Outgames in brazilian newspapers but I couldn’t see any serious one yet. Reading A Tarde I saw the ‘gaylimpiadas’ term, that I felt it was used in a pejorative way. However, I listed bellow some good sources about it:
