Jo Swinson, MP and Minister for Women and Equalities attended the London2018 Political Reception last night. It was great to see her, and even better to have her letter of support for the bid.
“I am delighted to support the bid for London to host the Gay Games in 2018.
As the fantastic 2012 Olympics showed, London is a wonderful host city for major sporting events. Coupled with its excellent sporting and transport infrastructure, London’s vibrant and diverse culture makes it an ideal city to welcome the Gay Games.
I believe hosting this event in London would encourage more people to take up sport around the country. The more opportunities people have to do this, the greater our chances will be of creating new sporting heroes to inspire future generations.
I am proud to be a supporter of the London2018 bid and I embrace the Gay Games principles of particiption, inclusion and personal best. I look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world to deliver the best Gay Games ever.”
We agree. Thank you.
