World Outgames executives are in South Florida for a site visit in advance of final selection for the 2017 games.
The games could attract tens of thousands of LGBT visitors to South Florida on Memorial Day Weekend in 2017. This year's games will be July 31-Aug. 11 in Antwerp, Belgium.
GLISA will announce Feb. 28 whether the 2017 games will be played in South Florida or in Reykjavík, Iceland. Three other cities also bid for the games: Denver, Rio de Janeiro and Rome. Click here to read more.
