Take advantage of the many Early Registration benefits, including the reduced registration fee, effective until 31 December 2004! Groups and clubs can also take advantage of our Instalment Payment Programme and may also receive one free registration in our team promotion, which runs until 31 October 2004.

CHORAL FESTIVAL
In collaboration with GALA Choruses, the Choral Festival will bring together hundreds of choral singers from around the world. As part of the official Outgames programme, choruses will produce events in a professional environment and they may also, if they wish, register to participate in performances offered to spectators and visitors to the 1
st World Outgames.

COUNTRY WESTERN DANCE

Country Western Dance competitions will take place over three days and will bring together some 500 dancers of all ages and abilities. Activities will be organised in collaboration with Club BOLO of Montréal and will be sanctioned by The International Association of Gay/Lesbian Western Dance Clubs (IAGLWDC).

SQUARE DANCE
Square Dance performances will be sanctioned by the International Association of Gay Square Dance (IAGLSDC) and will be organised in collaboration with The Ottawa Date Squares Dance Club.

BANDS AND COLOUR GUARDS
Band and Colour Guard activities will be created to showcase Bands, Colour Guards and the ROTC (The Righteously Outrageous Twirling Corps).

The 1
st World Outgames Opening and Closing Ceremonies at the Olympic Stadium will be televised in a one-hour mass-market broadcast on the Radio-Canada television network.

Whether it's at the Olympic Stadium, the Imperial Theatre-an architectural gem from the "Roaring Twenties"-the St. James United Church or simply in the parks and streets of the Village, downtown Montréal will delightfully overrun with artists and performers, and will become a world cultural capital for the Outgames.

   
   
 

METCALF AND ORSER JOIN THE MONTRÉAL 2006 ATHLETES' CIRCLE
American Olympic rowing champion, Holly Metcalf, and Canadian Olympic figure skating champion, Brian Orser, have become the two first members of the 1
st World Outgames Montréal 2006 Athletes' Circle.

Still active in figure skating, Brian Orser is a living legend, not only in Canada, but to thousands of people around the world who see him as a symbol of courage and excellence.

 

   
   
   

GAYAFRIQUE.COM MEDIA PARTNERSHIP
The 1st  World Outgames Montréal 2006 has just signed a media partnership agreement with Africa's only French-language gay website, www.gayafrique.com. The agreement is valued at $80,000. This young site is the creation of Rwandan Alexis Musanganya, and operates in difficult social and political conditions, given the few rights afforded to LGBT individuals in the majority of countries it serves. We would like to extend a warm welcome to our African friends.
