World OutGames Miami
Thousands of participants, spectators and thought leaders from around the globe will converge on Miami for World OutGames IV from May 26 through June 4, 2017. This 10-day event will bring to life more than 400 events across three areas: Sport, Culture and Human Rights. World OutGames Miami will challenge you physically, stimulate you intellectually and enliven you emotionally. Be part of it all, and leave transformed for the better – in your mind, your body and your heart!
Every four years, World OutGames brings together LGBTQI athletes, many from countries where homosexuality remains illegal and hidden. In the spirit of true inclusiveness, the World OutGames are open to all, regardless of sexual orientation. Registration is open to anyone 18 and older; however, a specific youth program for those between the ages of 14-17 will be coordinated in partnership with Pridelines Youth Services, a Miami based not-for-profit which offers a safe place for LGBTQI youth, adults and allies.
In addition to 30 competitive sports and a variety of cultural events, the Games will also feature the Global Conference on Human Rights, a three-day event (May 26-29) headlined by a distinguished roster of notable activists, thought leaders and community figures promoting inclusivity in sports, health & wellness and global social justice.
World OutGames Miami is made possible through the support of Bacardi, the City of Miami Beach, Coca-Cola, Florida Sports Foundation, Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, Happy Copenhagen, the International Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights, Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority, Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners and Miami Sports.

Gay Map of Miami
The gay scene in Miami is centred around South Beach. The gay beach is located at 12th Street and Ocean Drive. It is not too difficult to find, with the rainbow flags marking the territory between two chair rental spots. We have made 2 maps showing the gay bars, the first being Miami Beach where a lot of the events will be held and the second being the other areas with gay bars and clubs.
