Even though the gay community – and really, what the hell does that mean? – hasn’t exactly accepted Ozzie Guillen‘s apology for using the word “fag” as a derogatory term, the White Sox manager still plans on attending the Gay Games in Chicago. Guillen will use his single free day during the team’s six-day road trip to accept the invitation by Gay Games organizers, which means on the second day of competition he’ll be alongside track and field, softball, flat football, and wrestling fans. Gay Games VII spokesman Kevin Boyer says the event is welcoming Guillen with open arms.
We’re glad to hear he’ll be attending because it demonstrates how the gay games brings people together — whether straight or gay — through competition. There’s no hurt feelings. He’s apologized . . . he won’t do it again.
Your call: Does Ozzie deserve to be welcomed at the Gay Games?
