Welcome to be a part of our EuroGames Stockholm 2015.
EuroGames 2015 allows Stockholm, known worldwide as an open and welcoming destination, an opportunity to state as an example and act as an international role model for LGBTQ rights. There are still severe problems for LGBTQ people around the world in politics, culture and sport where EuroGames fulfil its mission as an open for all event. Nationally we also have the possibility to highlight the existing problems for transgender participation as well as inform and prevent the fact that many young LGBTQ people quit or never even begin with organised sport.
Jakob Jansson, President of EuroGames Stockholm
