Miami Beach in Finals to Host 2017 worldOutgames

MIAMI BEACH—The Gay and Lesbian International Sport Association (GLISA) last week announced its shortlist of bidders for the fourth edition of worldOutgames, with Miami Beach and Reykjavík, Iceland have been named the finalists to host the worldOutgames in 2017.

Daniel Vaudrin, Co-President of GLISA, which serves as the governing body of the worldOutgames, told reporters, “We have two amazing cities for our members to choose between at our selection meeting in Antwerp in February 2013. Both cities are very different from each other and each is equally exciting in its own way.”

Denver, Rio de Janeiro, and Rome were also considered. Officials say that a site inspection team will visit both cities to prepare a report for GLISA to review before making the final selection in February.
