LGBT Site of the Week – Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association

GLISA_logoThe Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association, also known as GLISA, has been around since 2006, when the Federation of Gay Games pulled their sanctioning and moved the Gay Games VII to Chicago. The organization now hosts the World Outgames, the 3rd of which is hosted this year in Antwerp, Belgium.

GLISA also supports equality in all sports for the LGBT community. They speak out against discrimination in sports on an international level. In fact, they recently released a statement to the International Olympic Committee requesting the Olympics be removed from Russia.

They’re a great, home-grown, equal rights group that needs our support. Go to their  website here and check them out.
