Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames Outreach Program

Our objective is to make Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames a truly global event with the participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) citizens from as many countries as possible.

Therefore Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames has created the Outreach Program with the purpose of ensuring representation from countries whose LGBT citizens might otherwise not have the means or support to come to Copenhagen. Read more about the Outreach Program and the reason why there is a Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames Outreach Program.

Application for the Outreach program was open from April to October 2008 and we have recieved approximately 600 applications from people around the world. In order to be able to support as many people as possible World Outgames has established several inititaitives to raise further funds. Read more about the different fundraising initiatives.
