Melbourne is to host the 1st Asia Pacific Outgames and the Midsumma Festival between January 30 and February 3, 2008.

This international multi-sport tournament, human rights conference and cultural festival embraces the Asia Pacific’s gay and lesbian community and its friends.

The organisers wish you a pleasant visit to Melbourne and remind you to wear plenty of sunscreen, keep yourself hydrated, eat healthy energy-rich food, reduce your environmental impact, get plenty of sleep before you play with your neighbours and party hard afterwards, playing safe and smart by protecting yourselves.
