Success! You're on the list.

D.C. is one of the final four cities that will vie to host the 2014 Gay Games, the 9th quadrennial competition that was created to “foster and augment the self-respect of lesbians and gay men throughout the world.”

D.C. will compete with Boston (ugh), Miami (booo), and Cleveland (sucks) to host these gay Olympics of sorts. Steel yourself, D.C.: The selection process is a long one. We’ll have to wait until October of next year to find out which of the cities (ooh! pick us!) will get the honor.
