Quickie Link: Melbourne Outgames Co-Pres to Visit New Zealand
(New Zealand) - The co-president of Melbourne's inaugural Gay and Lesbian multi-sport games is holding meetings in Auckland and Wellington this week so New Zealanders can find out more about the event. The first Asia Pacific Outgames will take place between 30 January to 3 February 2008, staged during the Midsumma Festival, Melbourne's premier Gay and Lesbian cultural and arts event. A two-day Human Rights Conference is also planned - with New Zealand's own Georgina Beyer recently announced as one of the keynote speakers. Badminton, hockey, dancesport, lawn bowls, rowing, running, swimming, ten-pin bowling, tennis and water polo are among the many sport tournaments planned at the Games.
