Metro Weekly has an update on Washington, D.C.’s bid for the 2014 Gay Games. According to the paper, “D.C.’s bid, which included a requisite $1,000 fee, came from the Metropolitan Washington Gaymes Inc., a nonprofit 501c3 set up specifically for the Gay Games bid.” Brent Minor, president of GLBT sporting organization Team DC, attended the Federation of Gay Games meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, last month, where he was elected co-president of the organization’s Board of Directors. ”Washington, D.C., has a strong, committed, diverse organizing committee that is experienced in running international gay, sport tournaments,” he said of D.C.’s chances. “Our clubs have hosted every major gay, sport tournament that there is. I think that bodes well for our city.”
