This year the Olympics Games were held from July 23 to August 8 in Tokyo. We recently talked about the winners, that is why today we want to do the same but with LGBTQ Athletes!

There were at least 182 publicly out LGBTQ athletes at the Tokyo Summer Olympics. 55 of these athletes won medals, specifically with 32 team and individual medals: 11 gold, 12 silver, and 9 bronze.

That means that they performed at a very high level, didn’t they? Let’s figure it out!

Gay Olympic games

The Gay Games is a sporting event like the Olympic Games. It’s a sport and cultural event that helps the collective struggle promoting the acceptance of sexual diversity.

The first Gay Games were celebrated in San Francisco in 1982. At that moment, the transmission of HIV had peaked among the city’s gay community. The main objective was to protest and an event in which LGBTQ people could play in a sporting event as do people in the Olympics Games.

Sports weren’t the focus of the event, as we said it is more for revindication and awareness, but a lot of professional athletes had a lot of power.
