World OutGames 2017 in Miami is Cancelled

. Due to financial burdens, World OutGames 2017 in Miami must cancel opening and closing ceremonies and sports programming with the exception of aquatics, country western dance and soccer.

The cancellation came a few hours before the opening of the event. Many participants and visitors were surprised and did not understand the late cancellation. Some have already been in Miami for this cultural sporting event.

The Human Rights Conference and cultural programs will continue as planned. We thank everyone who has supported the effort and apologize to those who will be impacted by this difficult decision.

City of Miami Beach along with the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) and the Miami Beach Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, has worked with the event's logistics organizers to restore many of the events that were planned.
