2008 Sept 25

※Denmark's capital, Copenhagen.

Hello, this is your chief editor, Yuki Keiser, reporting.
I made it safely to Europe and am now in Copenhagen!
The temperature is about 12 degrees, clearly colder than Tokyo,
and already I've been exploring the area with the help of a local lesbian.

Today, I interviewed persons responsible for organizing the Outgames in Copenhagen, scheduled for July of next year.

As many of you may know, the Outgames are basically the LGBT Olympics with a cultural fair thrown in. LGBT athletes from around the world come together once every four years in different cities to compete over the course of 10 days. In addition, a number of conferences, art exhibitions and other events are also scheduled to take place before, during, and after the Outgames, meaning that as a whole, the event is being managed as a grand-scale affair with the sponsorship of the city of Copenhagen itself as well as major corporations such as IBM and Scandinavian Airlines. Plans are in place to get 20,000 people involved in the event next year and turn the town all shades of queer.

For my interview, I spoke with the project manager for the cultural program Jane Rowley, an out lesbian and art curator by profession. She shared insider's background on the Outgames, its cultural events, and the scene in Copenhagen in general too. The article and interview will be posted on TW in the near future, so be on the lookout!
