"Put your pride on the shelf"

Oh, boy, can't wait until 2014 when the Gay Games come to Cleveland.

Mayor Frank Jackson said the city "is prepared to roll out the welcome mat to the LGBT athletes, their families and spectators from around the world. Fans of the Gay Games will find that Cleveland is a great place to celebrate sports and culture and that we have tremendous assets and amenities for them to enjoy. The sports and cultural environment here is truly a uniquely Cleveland experience, one they will cherish for years to come."

Cleveland’s 2014 Gay Games IX Sports & Cultural Festival is set for Aug. 9 through Aug. 16, 2014. It will include 30 sports, four cultural events, opening and closing ceremonies and cultural events.

Maybe we'll leave for vacation during that week. If so I have to remember as we roll down I-80 to instruct my wife not to look in the rearview mirror lest she be turned into a pillar of salt.


  1. Well, yeah, that's the first thing that popped into my mind. Supposedly it has the highest concentration of homosexuals anywhere between San Francisco and NYC, at least it did a few years back. So that's a good bet.
