I am deeply saddened that there still exists homophobia so great that skaters feel the need to remain closeted.
It is the goal of the International Gay Figure Skating Union to work with the Federation of Gay Games and the figure skating community to further the ideals of the Federation within the skating world. The purpose of the Federation of Gay Games is to foster and augment the self respect of gay men and women throughout the world and to engender respect and understanding from the non-gay world through sports and cultural events.
The International Gay Figure Skating Union is committed to fighting discrimination in the world of figure skating and to creating a more tolerant and safe environment for gay and lesbian figure skaters. It is our sincerest hope that out efforts will result in a future in which figure skaters can express themselves openly and honestly and without fear, without regard to their sexual orientation.
