PHOTOS: Vancouver Lets The (Out)games Begin—And End!

The 2011 GLISA North American Outgames were held July 25th–31st in Vancouver, British Columbia,  in conjunction with Vancouver Pride—which made for an even bigger celebration when hundreds of LGBT athletes gave it their all in events ranging from golf, softball, volleyball and soccer to ballroom dancing and poker. Here are some snapshots from the weekend.

      Umm… were there any sports played at the outgames? I mean, other than golf, dancing, and posing?

      Having lived in vancouver for 2 1/2 years, I can say with confidence that, while it’s undoubtedly a geographically beautiful city with some outrageously cute guys, holy crap is it dull and boring. The nightlife is pitiful.

      And worse, the gays there have this attitude that, because they’ve made it to Vancouver from their tiny town up in the Arctic, they have now made it to the top of the world. To be fair, it IS the only city with any kind of gay life in the whole of Western Canada. But having also lived in New York and London, I can tell those queens that they AIN’T all that, and the Odyssey WASN’T the greatest club that ever existed.

      Still, nice park. And they have whales.
