  2. 2. A C E L E B R A T I O N F O R E V E R Y O N E
  3. 3. In 2018, we celebrate the 10th edition of the Gay Games. Nine great events have preceded this anniversary. From all of us in Amsterdam to all involved in the Federation of Gay Games: congratulations! We believe Amsterdam would be the perfect city to organize Gay Games X. Amsterdam has a rich tradition of personal freedom and its liberal values ensure a safe and confortable place for all people, no matter what their gender is, or the colour of their skin, or their sexual orientation. Participants and visitors of Gay Games X – from whatever part of the world – can feel completely at ease for one entire week. Be themselves without any hesitations. The Amsterdam Games 2018 Foundation is a network organization.Together with many different professional organizations, we will undertake this adventure with you.The gay sports, cultural and business associations we work with are of a very high standard. GUTS (gays united through sports) is member of the Dutch branch of IOC, Progay organize the biggest gay pride in the world andWorkplace Pride speak to CEO’s of Shell and IBM on a daily basis.To name just a few.With Amsterdam being a relatively small city, teaming up with such great partners will make for a very exiting event. Right in the middle of the old city centre, the Museum Plaza will become CelebrationVillage – the vibrant hotspot of Gay Games X.With opening and closing ceremonies, accessible to everyone. And a multiplicity of activities during that week.True inclusion: participants and visitors celebrating LGBT culture and lifestyle, together with the local people ofThe Netherlands. With the world facing difficult financial times, the Amsterdam Games 2018 Foundation has found a way of achieving a grand spectacle, using a relatively limited budget.We believe public resources are not inexhaustible and Gay Games X should take that into account. Without hesitation, all members of the Amsterdam Games 2018 Foundation fully agree with the bid we offer you now. Please enjoy. WHY AMSTERDAM WANTS TO HOST GAY GAMES X amsterdam 2018

  7. 7. amsterdam 2018 7 amsterdam 2018 7 1. UNDERSTAND ING OF THE GAY GAMES Introduction All Gay Games have been a great celebration of joy, inclusiveness and non-discriminatory participation regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political belief(s), athletic/ artistic ability, physical challenge, age or health status. Anyone who might ask: “Why is there still a need for such an event?” has never been to any Gay Games in his or her life. It has become a monumental jubilation, an icon of LGBT culture. In 2018 the world proudly welcomes the 10th edition of the Gay Games – what a great achievement! However this bid book beauty pageant may turn out: Amsterdam congratulates the Federation of Gay Games for its effortless work to come up with great events, time and time again. Because we know all too well: it hasn’t been easy. Especially financially – some host cities have struggled with this in the past.The Amsterdam bid has the utmost focus on this aspect without compromising on the objectives of the Gay Games. By doing so, we honor the work of dr.TomWaddell. It’s true: LGBT equality and liberation have gained ground in many parts of the world.The visibility of the Gay Games and the personal strength it imparted to all visitors has been a serious contribution to that. But there is still so much good work to be done. Much of that work is described in the goals that the Federation of Gay Games has set out to achieve.To reach those goals and
  8. 8. amsterdam 2018 8 1. UNDERSTAND ING OF THE GAY GAMES to secure the future of the event for generations to come, the 10thanniversary must surpass all previous Gay Games – in personal experience, worldwide political potency and financial certainty. Only Amsterdam can do this. Gay Games X in 2018 will become memorable for offering a warm welcome to us all, for including the diverse community that we are, for reconnecting the youth to the Gay Games and for lifting this event to a stage it so desperately deserves. This April the Dutch queen will abdicate and her son will become king. All news media jump on the event. In one interview, the respected Dutch historian, professor dr. Herman Pleij pointed out that: “the very core of Dutch society is diversity.” In contrast to, for example, the British or the French, where all that was different was frowned upon, the Dutch embrace the diverse. We need to, we are trade people so need to get along with everyone. Prejudice only gets in the way of making a dollar. No wonder New York was once New Amsterdam – different nationalities, influences and people of other sexual orientation are as welcome there as they are here. The obvious choice Many of the volunteers, who collaborated on creating this bid for you, remember Gay GamesV in 1998 like it was yesterday.Without exception, they all hold positive memories to that week in the summer of Amsterdam. “It was like we were the majority instead of a minority for once” is a comment that is often heard.We have continued to visit other Gay Games, like the one in Sydney (VI) or in Cologne (VIII). Excellent Games but – arrogant as it may sound – we feel: nothing like the one in Amsterdam. Where stereotypes were broken down and bridges were built between mainstream and LGBT sports and cultural communities were built.These bridges still exist today, but and nowadays they have expanded their scope and have obtained an unprecedented clout.Take the canal parade for instance; the highlight of modern day Gay Pride Amsterdam.This event was born in 1998 during Gay GamesV as part of the program. Without Gay GamesV, the city of Amsterdam would not be able to host this event as part of the best and biggest Gay Pride in the world. It is the second largest annual event of the city with hundred thousends of straight people partaking in LGBT culture and activities. And it is of course needless to say that the first LGBT marriages in the world were held in Amsterdam. Amsterdam only inhabits around 800,000 residents and still the city is globally known as one of the great capitals of the world. Being only a dot on the map,The Netherlands came out 13th in the London Olympics, having top-notch sports venues and facilities to show for it. Besides: this city has more culture on offer per square mile than any other city in the world and for a relatively small city, Amsterdam and its people have always given a great deal of thought, money and effort to human rights
  9. 9. 9 amsterdam 2018 1. UNDERSTAND ING OF THE GAY GAMES issues – no wonder the LGBT Rights advocacy director of Human RightsWatch is a former Dutch politician. COC Netherlands has been advocating the rights of lesbian women, gay men, bisexuals and transgenders from 1946 on. COC Netherlands is the only LGBT-organization with a special consultative status with the United Nations. Like in 1998, Gay Games X will not be concentrated in a “gay ghetto” but will involve the entire city.The ‘human measure’of Amsterdam is one of the great assets of the Amsterdam bid. In every corner of every neighborhood, people are invited to join us in an event that will range to their very doorstep. Yes: some sports venues and events are located or held at the outskirts of the city, but they are still only 15 minutes away from the city center. The involvement of young people with modern technology and social networks with grow further every year.To be able to reconnect them with the Gay Games, technology is of the utmost importance – young people can only be reached inside their own world, using their own language and means of communication.The Netherlands is known for its incredibly high level of technology (the smartest parts of your iPhone are created here, so was the cd, and the dvd) and communications. It should come as no surprise that social media, (real time) streaming video and online reporting at most of the events, are commonplace in this Amsterdam bid.
  10. 10. 10 amsterdam 2018 1. UNDERSTAND ING OF THE GAY GAMES BUDGET InThe Netherlands it’s not very polite to talk about money. But since the world has entered an entire new economical era of financial distress and theWest is dealing with diminishing wealth, we cannot disregard this in our bid.The IMF has recently stated that the financial crises will last until at least 2018.To organize the Gay Games X, Amsterdam chooses to present a far more moderate budget than bidding host cities have presented in the past. Still, Amsterdam promises to outdo all other Gay Games.We can do so, because we built a network organization structure.The gay sports associations are all professional organizations in their own right.Together they are partnered in GUTS (Gays UnitedThrough Sports) – a member of the national NOC*NSF, itself a member of the IOC. GUTS is one of our leading partners in organizing the Gay Games X. So is Progay; the planning force of Amsterdam Gay Pride. AndWorkplace Pride; the international (Amsterdam based) gays-in-business association. Let’s not forget the Amsterdam University that is giving its full support. And of course local and national governments praise this bid –not in the least because we offer a unique and unparalleled sponsor plan that is set out to obtain contribution and engagement from large international corporations, in a very early stage.This is a new way of thinking and the best possible way forward.Where others will need to build a structure, Amsterdam already has one. The Gay Games X will need to be an event of such quality and prestige that no one will ever after want to miss out of. LGBT or straight. Only Amsterdam can accomplish this.

  12. 12. amsterdam 2018 13 2. organizational structure and capacity Experience and skills of the key members Bid Organization Amsterdam Games 2018 Foundation will coordinate the organization of the Gay Games 2018.The initiators choose to set up a new legal entity, functioning as a network organization.This means that for the different parts of the event, experienced organizations will be mobilized. For the different sports tournaments, the gay sports associations that are involved. The opening & closing ceremony as well as the setup of the gay games village will be executed by Xsaga BV. The cultural program will be organized by ProGay. The human rights program will be organized by the Amsterdam Research Center for Gender and Sexuality of the University of Amsterdam; Recruitment of volunteers will be done byWorkplace Pride; The ICT support and registration will be managed by Next Gear BV; The finances will be supervised by a trustee service provider. All these different organizations will be monitored by the aforementioned board of the foundation.The members of this board are: Carina Benninga: Carina Benninga (1962) is director of Van Ede & Partners, a coaching and consulting bureau. Before that, she was active for the athletes union NL Sporter, of which she was one of the founders. Benninga debuted in the Dutch hockey team at the 1983World Cup, immediately winning the title. As midfielder, she was also present when the Dutch won their first Olympic hockey gold, at the 1984 Los Angeles Games. She had high hopes for the 1986World Cup, which was held in the Netherlands, but was unable to play after breaking her collarbone briefly before the start of the tournament. Benninga was captain of the Dutch team at the nextWorld Cup, and she led her team to victory, defeating the Australian hosts in the final. At her third Olympics in 1992 in Barcelona, Benninga became the first Dutch woman to carry the flag at the opening ceremonies. After that, she retired from hockey. She took up coaching, first as assistant-coach of the US team, later of several Dutch league clubs History, mission statement and governance structure.
