Watch out Chicago!

Cheer NY leaves for the Gay Games in one week!!

"What are these Gay Games?" you say. Well........

From July 15-22, 2006, Chicago will play host to the world and welcome thousands of athletes, spectators and cultural participants into the city for the seventh quadrennial Gay Games Sport and Cultural Festival. The Games will feature 12,000 participants from more than 70 counties, competing in 30 sports, world-class athletes and artists, band and choral performances, nightly medal ceremonies, a weeklong arts festival, parties and spectacular opening and closing ceremonies.

What happens when 12 Pride Cheerleading Association teams come together to perform at the largest LGBT event in the country?

They Create Fan-Addicts!!!

For the first time, cheer teams will be an official/sanctioned event of the Gay Games cultural program, adding even more excitement and energy to the weeklong cultural festival. Cheerleaders have always played a part in the Gay Games, but in Gay Games VII they will be full-fledged participants, receiving participant medals, marching with the other athletes and artists into the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and even performing in their own exhibition.

With Gay Games VII looming on the horizon, one can only guess at what exciting hallmarks are yet to be scribed in the Pride Cheerleading Association (PCA) history books. One thing for certain, however, is that whatever the challenge, the cheerleaders and team spirit participants will rise to it with unparalleled color and flair and onlookers will be left standing, jaws agape with amazement, thinking only:

"Aren't they FABULOUS!?"
