WATCH: Reykjavik Makes A Damn Good Case For Hosting The 2017 Outgames

Reykjavik is one of five cities making a bid to host the 2017 Outgames, along with Denver, Miami Beach, Rio de Janeiro and Rome.

    Wow! I want to move to Reykjavik now! The Gay Games should DEFINITELY be rewarded to this wonderful city!

    Yeah, choose a super-expensive city where pretty much everybody will have to fly to at great expense, the better to keep away everyone but the rich masters of the gay universe.

    @viveutvivas: Reykjavik is no more expensive than LA/NY or SF. Was station in Keflavik for 3yrs. Iceland is one of them most open and friendly countries I have been in.
