    when the gay games were forced to chose that name because the us olympic group would not allow a group of athletic homos the name "olympics"  --- when stating clearly that there was no room for a bunch of queers to use "their word" yes, it was then that it became crucial that we know the legacy of the gay olympics/gay games.

    not to mention the importance of athletes of olympic caliber who are gay or lesbian whose coming out could and does provide young queers with better frames of reference as to what is possible for them.

    in case you forgot, just recently in soCal, an 8th grader shot and killed a classmate because that classmate was gay (or efeminate).

    don't mock the kids who experience homophobia every day -- sometimes it kills.
