GLISA has 2 formal Continental Associations, Asia Pacific & North America, one in the process of becoming incorporated, Central & South America, and two partners, with a network of members we are partnering with in Europe and Africa. GLISA will work with these partners to deliver Continental OutGames on the years between World OutGames events.
Continental OutGames are a smaller version of World OutGames offering 8-10 sports disciplines, a cultural component and a human rights conference.

2011 will be an ideal time for those living overseas to visit New Zealand, and for offshore kiwis to make the trip home. And there’s plenty of time for you to plan what part of the OutGames you’ll be a part of! Registrations open in 2010.
