"YOU CHANGE THE WORLD BY BEING YOURSELF" - YOKO ONO
Whoever we are, whatever we do, wherever we come from, we all have our own diversity. We're all the same, we're all different. Let's express loud and clear who we are in order to quit a black and white world that belongs to the past and enter a colorful world that belongs to the future. On the occasion of a walk in Paris, let's look each other right in the eyes to see that being different is what we have in common. Let's change by being ourselves thanks to a huge coming out of the diversities.
Since 1982, the Gay Games have brought together people from all walks of life, without discrimination, around the values of diversity, respect, equality, solidarity, and sharing.
In 2018, the 10th edition was the 1st edition of the the 1st WORLD DIVERSITY GAMES. With sport being a medium for togetherness and inclusion, the Games were open to all and offered everyone the opportunity to participate in their own way. Over 10000 participants, 20000 visitors and 750000 spectators shared together some moments rich in emotion.
The show was made like a walk in Paris. "Gaymers" from all over the world and Parisians from all over the city met in the most famous neighborhoods of the French capital, discovered each other and claimed all together the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF DIVERSITY.
