Gay Games ceremonies and it brought tears of pride and hope to my eyes. Very powerful stuff.
Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. at Forte Leme will be the Parade of Nations followed by the Homeless World Cup Opening Ceremonies. Then the games begin! The format is a quick 14 minute game [8 players on the field], so stopping to watch for a while is pretty easy.
Better yet - VOLUNTEER to help make it the best event possible. Word is they still could use some help. Contact: Catriona Kay 8034-2279 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org Serious calls and emails only, her plate is really full right now. For more information about the event visit their website: Homeless World Cup. Or just show up with a good additude and I'm sure you will be put to work. Volunteers are needed all week.
The current President and Co-founder of the Homeless World Cup is keeping a personal blog of his experiences at the games. Check it out here.
