The Federation of Gay Games (FGG) board of directors announces 2015 Medal of Honour Legacy Award to “The People of the Republic of Ireland” to commemorate the first nation to approve Marriage Equality by National Referendum. The public vote took place 23 May 2015 and over 60 percent voted in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage. Legacy Awards honor outstanding individuals and institutions whose work contributes to the mission and values of the FGG. Along with the Medal of Honour Legacy Award, the FGG will announce other esteemed annual Legacy Awards as part of the FGG’s Annual General Assembly (AGA) 16-18 October 2015 in Limerick, Ireland.

The FGG presents Legacy Awards to recognize the extraordinary contributions of those who ensure the success of the Gay Games, who promote shared values, and who contribute to the community. Complete list of Legacy Award winners are available here.

The AGA brings together delegates from its full members, associate members and board members to discuss the activities of the past year, plan future activities and elect the FGG board members for the next year. The Board of Directors for Paris 2018, host city of Gay Games 10, will also be present to discuss their plans for the 2018 event. All AGA attendees are encouraged to book travel and accommodations for the October 2015 event. Complete 2015 AGA information is available at https://gaygames.org.
