Organizers of the Gay Games XI competition on Wednesday named D.C. one of three finalists to host the event to be held in July 2022.
The other two cities named as finalists were Hong Kong and Guadalajara, Mexico. The three were chosen from a group of eight cities that initially bid on the games.
“We are thrilled and honored to have reached the final round of this bid process,” said Brent Minor, chair of the Gay Games Washington DC 2022 bid committee. “Now, we will intensify our efforts to bring the games here in 2022. We know that Washington will be a fantastic host for LGBTQ athletes from around the globe and we can’t wait to put our city on display for the world.”
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who has pledged to place the city government in full support for the bid to hold the 2022 Gay Games in D.C., said she was delighted to hear the city has been named one of three finalists for the Games.
D.C. will next host a visit from the Federation of Gay Games in early May when a delegation will inspect proposed venues for competitions and evaluate the extent of local community support for the games.
