Cleveland Welcomes Gay Games With Open Arms

Published Date Author: , August 16th, 2014

Gay Games 9Nick Gill says he was warned by a teammate on his indoor volleyball team about what Cleveland might be like before they left Portland, Maine, for the Gay Games this week.

“He was telling us horror stories about growing up here,” Gill said Thursday while watching the beach volleyball tournament at a lakeside park just outside downtown Cleveland, which is staging the Games with nearby Akron.

Gill said his teammate, who was raised in Cleveland, has been “humbled” by the progress the city has made and by the warm reception Gay Games participants have received. “People are just so thankful we’re here,” Gill said. “It’s exceeded all of my expectations.”

Other Games participants also praised Cleveland and Akron and called the host cities friendly and hospitable.
