The Gay Games is a good idea but the name needs some work. If The Gay Games is fully inclusive, it would have been so much easier to call the event The “LGBT” or even The “GLBT” Games. The name alone raises a red flag of caution although, as far as I know, The Gay Games are the best thing since sliced bread.
Maybe I am too sensitive but I have seen our Transgender community thrown under the bus far too many times by so-called inclusive organizations that are wolves in sheep's clothing. Again, if you include the "T" or "B", you had better stand behind it with actions.
This brings to mind the LGBT Community Center in Richmond called the Gay Community Center of Richmond, VA. I happen to know the ED and she stands fully behind the entire Queer community. The Richmond community center shows their inclusivity by their actions as well as their words.
