"Allowing LGBT+ people to be their whole self”

“Enabling Athletes To Bring Their Whole Self To The Field, Pitch, Pool, Gym, Floor Or Court”

35 Years ago Olympic athlete Tom Wardell talked about not being a complete athlete, as he couldn’t bring his ”whole self to the athletic field”. He felt he couldn’t truly perform at his sporting best, with wasted energy spent on the worry of being ‘out’ and covering up the fact he was a gay man.

He knew he wasn’t alone and so together with a few other like-minded people he found the ‘Federation of Gay Games’, based on the principles of Participation, Inclusion and personal best.

35 years later the Federation exists to ‘promote equality in and through sport and culture’, with various activities around the world, culminating in the quadrennial Gay Games, one of the world’s largest sporting and cultural events.

Furthermore, we now have organisations like Deloitte and ‘Out Leadership’ (with openly gay CEOs of major global corporations) talking about ‘bringing your whole self to work’ and striving for equality in the workplace. We’ve come along way in 35 years, but in some countries being openly gay is not an option. It is a criminal offense and in some cases results in death. The Federation of Gay Games (FGG) is a global not for profit organisation with its office base in San Francisco, USA. In order for us to achieve our goals and work towards equality in and through sport we raise funds to support our activities as well as seeking volunteers to assist us in our projects.
