Gay Games 9

Organizers say last summer’s Gay Games in northeast Ohio raised the most revenue in the event’s history.

Gay Games 9 Executive Director Thomas Nobbe says the August event held in Cleveland and Akron raised $6.8 million in revenue, netting a small profit of nearly $150,000.

Nobbe said at a forum held by the City Club of Cleveland Feb. 19 that $120,000 of the profits will go toward creating a fund at the Cleveland Foundation to continue to push for an inclusive and diverse northeast Ohio community. Another $27,000 will go to the Akron Community Foundation’s existing Gay Community Endowment Fund.
