Saturday was the launch of the Gay Games in Cleveland and President Barack Obama participated in the kick-off of these games with a video message during the opening ceremony.

Obama welcomed the world's athletes, 8,000 in all, and all accompanying persons. He recalled that the United States has done and continues to make progress on equality for the LGBT community and he said the country would continue to support LGBT people in countries where sexual orientation and gender identity are seen as a crime.

Watch his message below:

I recall that Mariah Hanson (the founder of The Dinah) is organizing a lesbian evening on August 13th (see our article: Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend To Host The Only Official Women Party At The 2014 Gay Games).
