What are Eurogames?
EuroGames are the premier multi-sports event in Europe celebrating diversity in sexual orientation, sex characteristics and gender identity. Started in 1992, the main goal is to provide a safe space for everyone to come together and play sports. EuroGames are primarily geared towards LGBTIQ+ athletes (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer), but are open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age and skill level.
The EuroGames feature a range of sports, including athletics, basketball, swimming, volleyball, and many others. The event aims to promote inclusion and diversity in sports, as well as to challenge stereotypes and discrimination against LGBTIQ+ individuals in athletics.
In addition to the sports competitions, the EuroGames also feature a range of cultural and social events, such as parties, concerts, and art exhibitions. The event provides a platform for LGBTIQ+ individuals and allies from across Europe to come together, celebrate their identities, and participate in a supportive and inclusive environment.
The EuroGames are governed by the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF), which works to promote LGBTIQ+ participation in sports and combat homophobia and transphobia in athletics. The EuroGames have grown in popularity over the years and have become an important event for the LGBTIQ+ community in Europe and beyond.
