On September 12th gays from Yekaterinburg will play final basketball rounds of summer "Rainbow tournament" that welcomes all who prefer active, sport lifestyle. "Please join us (alone or in groups), we will warm up and make teams. Those who prefer to watch the games will enjoy the possibility to drink soda, juices, even beer and eat snacks. Soon it will get cold in our region so we have to use every warm day for good", organizers of this tournament frankly tell to the members of Yekaterinburg's gay community on its Internet site Gay-ekt.ru (automatic translation here).
Earlier this summer Yekateriburg hosted Rainbow tournaments on soccer and volleyball.
In recent two years the gay life in Yekaterinburg has flourished and continues to grow bigger in almost every direction of social life with the help of a number of national LGBT organizations such as the Russian LGBT Network and LaSky Yekaterinburg.
