About the initiative

Initiative group Gay Games Amsterdam 1998-2023

A group of former Gay Gamers – Marian Bakker, Marc van den Broek, Janine van Doorn and Paul van Yperen – took the initiative to raise this milestone in our Pink Revolution from oblivion in 2023 and to inspire new generations of LGBTI+ people.

Together with Emma van Zalinge and IHLIA we have conceived and set up this commemorative website. The site will be part of a small but special anniversary programme in 2023, bringing the Amsterdam Gay Games back to life.

Editorial staff
