President Barack Obama is officially supporting Orlando, Florida's bid to host the 2018 Gay Games.
Watermarkonline.com is posting an image of the letter that the Orlando organizing committee received from the White House.
I am pleased to voice my support for the City of Orlando's bid to host the Gay Games 2018.
As President of the United States, I am committed to advancing equality for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community, both in America and around the world.
According to Outsports.com, this is believed to be the first such kind of support for a gay athletic games event from a U.S. president.
No other U.S. cities are bidding to host the 2018 Games. The 2014 Gay Games are to be held in Cleveland.
