From On Top Magazine:
Cleveland’s 2014 Gay Games IX Sports & Cultural Festival will take place August 9 – 16, 2014 and feature 30 sporting events, including a gay rodeo.
Cleveland’s bid for the event was assisted by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which threw a bid party. The bid’s theme, “My Games Rock,” fit nicely with the application, according to On Top.
