The Gay Games will be held in Cologne, Germany, from July 31-Aug. 7. In the run-up to the event, we would love to hear from athletes who will be competing. You can be an elite athlete, someone competing for the first time or in-between. Just tell us your story (why you're going or your goals or inspiration); there is no one formula.
We are looking for around 500 or so words (we will edit for style and grammar, so don't worry about your writing skills) and a photo. Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
