The largest Paralympics roster ever also features the largest number of out LGBTQ competitors in its history with at least 31 athletes representing 12 sports and 10 nations.

If you’re looking to watch some of these athletes compete live, with a 13-hour time difference between Tokyo and the East Coast of the United States, be prepared for some early mornings and some late nights to see these athletes go for the gold.

Here’s the complete list of Team LGBTQ, their events and when they’ll compete.

All times Eastern.
