The Gay Sports mailing list

Yes, sports fans, there exists an Internet mailing list devoted to gay, lesbian, and bisexual sports topics! The Gay Sports list will accept all manner of discussions on:

  • LGB athletic teams worldwide, including tournaments, results, and the like
  • The Gay Games and the Gay Games movement
  • Homophobia – and gay-positivity! – in sport
  • The special (and commonplace) circumstances and experiences of LGB athletes
  • Media coverage of LGB sports personalities and issues
  • Sports strategies and anecdotes
  • Any kind of discussion of any sports issue

...and virtually anything else that seems relevant. The list is unmoderated, so no one will censor or inhibit messages.

What makes a sport gay? Well, nothing, really – but gay, lesbian, and bisexual athletes often have special concerns, experiences, and goals that they'd like to talk about.
