Olympic swimming champion Greg Louganis announced at the Black Tie Dinner the city of Dallas is making a bid to host the 2022 Gay Games.

Louganis was in Dallas to receive the Elizabeth Birch Equality Award. During his acceptance speech, he said he was the first to announce the news that Dallas would actively pursue hosting the LGBT sports event that takes place every four years. Cleveland hosted the games in 2014 and Paris will be the host city in 2018.
