On Thursday, October 21, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA) is hosting a welcome home party for Team Sydney members who went to the Gay Games In Cologne.

To be held at Bourke St’s Beresford Hotel, the event will be a celebration of the fantastic effort Team Sydney — and the Australian contingent as a whole — put in during the August games. Australia’s 365 participating athletes — more than 200 of them from Team Sydney — shone at Gay Games VIII in Cologne, netting more than 200 medals in disciplines as diverse as wrestling and dance: 90 gold, 92 silver and 53 bronze in total.

SGLBA were Team Sydney’s main sponsors for the Cologne trip, so Team Sydney winners, wear your Games uniforms, don your medals with pride and head to the Beresford to bask in sporting glory and enjoy a well-deserved drink and catch-up with Cologne teammates.
