The Federation of Gay Games (FGG) announced Guadalajara, Mexico, as the presumptive co-host of the 2023 Gay Games. The Gay Games 11 Hong Kong were postponed to November 3-11, 2023.

The FGG said: 

"The international governing body for the Games, are in discussions with Guadalajara, Mexico, a finalist for the 2022 and 2026 Gay Games, to be a co-host of the November 2023 Gay Games.

Faced with continued challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertain trajectory of the virus, in the true spirit of “Unity in Diversity,” we wanted to ensure that Gay Games 11 can be accessible to participants across two locations and meet our aim of being as inclusive as possible.

The dates for the Hong Kong Games will remain the same, November 3-11, 2023. We are working to define the exact construct and program in each location, as well as the multitude of logistics necessary to ensure a seamless and positive experience for all."

The Gay Games are the largest LGBTQ sporting event in the world. It prizes inclusivity above sporting ability, and anyone can attend regardless of skill.
