…only three days left until the beginning and opening ceremony.
People are getting excited and looking forward for one of the biggest events of that kind. Starting at Saturday 31th of July the big opening event at the RheinEnergie Stadium 7.30 pm (entry at 5 pm) and the following big starting party Colour
(Lanxess Arena, 10 pm) will take place and the VIII. Gay Games
will be officially opened.
Regular this blog is written in german and about gay parties and events all over Germany, especially in the area North-Rhine-Westphalia which is the biggest federal state of Germany including the most cities of the country. In this federal state live round about 16 million inhabitants, the majority from all federal states of Germany. The population of Germany at all is round about 82 million people.
I´m writing about parties especially of North-Rhine Westphalia because most of the gay parties and events all over Germany takes place in this federal state and I´m living here, to be more exact in Cologne.
Behind the three biggest cities in Germany (Berlin, Hamburg and Munich) Cologne is the number four, but has the most active and biggest LGBT community in Germany. That may be one of the main reasons why the forthcoming VIII. Gay Games will take place in Cologne. This is the first time the Gay Games will be in Germany.
Sometimes I write about private things in my blog too and often about other themes belonging to the gay community as well.
I´ll try to keep you informed about the parties and events during the Gay Games in Cologne, if you wan´t it that way – don´t forget I´m living here – information, news and stories at first hand, like the subtitle of this blog.
You have also the choice to use one or more of the other services of this blog, like the Gay-Party-Guide Eventcalendar (hostet by Google Calender), which contents all the parties and events during the Gay Games in Cologne too. Further if you want to have an overview about the party and event locations you can use the Gay-Party-Guide Eventmap (hostet by Google Maps). Maybe you like to visit some websites of parties, events, locations, organisations and so on visit the online bookmarks as a supplement of this blog at delicious, all bookmarks are mostly focused on LGBT themes.
If you like to see some fotos or videos, take a look at the accounts of flickr and/or YouTube which are attended to this blog. You can find all the features and services in accompany to this blog at the right sidebar.
For example microblogging at Tumblr as well as Twitter is linkend in the sidebar too (take a look at the microbuttons and the other linked accounts). Following my Twitter-account is one of the fastest ways to be informed and updated. Another possibility to stay in contact and to be informed is the own group at Facebook belonging to the Gay-Party-Guide and more… blog. There are several rss-feeds which you can use to be informed too.
You see, I try to do a lot of things to inform my readers/visitors with a lot of comfort incl. the additional services of this blog. Simply I try to do my best and note I´m only a one-man-show using my free time to do this. I hope you like and enjoy it and the informations as well as the services are useful for you as my readers/visitors.
