Gay Games organizers in Guadalajara say that the games will go on in the Mexican city this November, regardless of historic-low registration numbers. It is, for the organizers, a push to impact Central and South America with a multinational LGBTQ event they say is guaranteed to take place in some form, due to government funding. Monica Eugenia Sanchez Torres, a Gay Games Guadalajara spokesperson, told Outsports that the event has government support that she claims guarantees the games will take place in some form. She also shared that only 1,160 athletes had officially registered for the Games in Guadalajara as of July 31, an increase of just about 380 in three months since Outsports previously reported the registration number. She added that, while the individual players haven’t yet registered, committed teams account for about another 300 athletes.
