Name: Hans Perrée

During 1996 while preparing for the rowing competitions in the Gay Games Amsterdam with John Avis, I was quite skeptical about the usefulness and necessity of special competitions for LGBTQI+ people. In my own rowing career my homosexuality has never been an issue. However, what I discovered during the rowing races on the Bosbaan was the incredible amount of fun we had — and perhaps because of that it was even more sport-like — than all the Rotsee Regattas and rowing World Championships than I had ever experienced. If that was true for me, what must be going through the minds of LGBTQI+ athletes from Albania or Bulgaria… That week in August ’96 and the OutGames and EuroGames in which I participated afterwards, firmly convinced me of the significance of events for the emancipation of LGBTQI+ people. Being able to exercise with people you recognize yourself in, without fear of insults or offensive comments is an incredible experience. That is why I am unreservedly a EuroGames Nijmegen 2022 ambassador.


The organisation has made the tournament specific rules and its program now available.

Furthermore, the official rowing rules of World Rowing will also apply.
