The XII EuroGames, a sort of "Olympic Games” will take place this year in Barcelona from July 24th-27th. Since 1992 when the first EuroGames were carried out in the city of Den Haag till today many other European cities like Berlin, Paris, Manchester or Zurich have already received the games, but it is the first time that the games arrive to the Mediterranean Sea.
The EuroGames are a gay and lesbian sporting event in Europe, hosted by license of the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federation and organized by one or more of the federation's member clubs.
The competitions will take place in some of the venues used for the Olympic Games in 1992 like the emblematic Palau Sant Jordi and more than 1500 athletes in 28 different sport disciplines from various European countries have registered for these two days of sports and an audience of nearly 30.000 people is expected to attend the various parties, cultural events, and the gay/lesbian film festival that will take place on the same dates.
