“The positive benefits to both your physical and mental well being from playing sport are well documented and we hope that a high profile Irish team taking part in the Gay Games will help break down barriers and make sport a more inclusive and welcoming place for the LGBT community.”


The 10th Gay Games will take place in Paris from August 4th to 12th, 2018 and Team Ireland are looking for LGBTQ athletes to join the team:

We’re aiming to bring a team of over 100 participants and supporters to Paris next August from all over the country, in as many of the 40 sports as possible. Anyone can sign up to join Team Ireland – the Gay Games is an event for serious competitors and social grades alike with the main principles “participation, inclusion and personal best”.
