The third World Outgames is coming to Antwerp, a city of Ruebens, of diamonds, of fashion, and above all a port city in Belgium. The world Outgames is an international event organized from within the LGBTQ community. After Montreal 2006 and Copenhagen 2009, Antwerp is next in line in 2013. The event consists of three main pillars: a human rights conference, a cultural festival and a sports event which is anticipated to attract 250,000 visitors.
Sports – 40 disciplines are lined up for you to choose: archery, bowling, bridge, baseball, badminton, basketball, chess, climbing, country western dancing, cycling, diving, figure skating, field hockey, fencing, golf, handball, ice hockey, inline speedskating time trial, inline skating roll OUT, martial arts, pool, petanque, running, rowing, soccer, same-sex dancing, sport shooting, softball, squash, swimming, synchronized swimming, skaten, table tennis, track and field, triathlon, volleyball, water polo and wrestling.  
Human Rights Conference - “From Safe Harbour to Equality” is the theme for the 3-day human rights conference which runs from July 31 to August 2, 2013. Bringing together an effective assembly of motivated change workers, the conference is designed for 650 attendees and addresses as main themes justice, religion, health, and migration.
Culture – Working with Antwerp Pride and Summer of Antwerp Festival, the cultural program features a rainbow village “Love United” with lots of artists performing on stage, exhibitions throughout the city, and plenty of festivals on poetry, literature, movies, musical, and choir. And, of course, it includes the much anticipated Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Women only parties will also be offered.
Registration consists of two parts. The World Outgames Experience Package is 99 euro until February 28, 2013. The package includes a programme booklet, opening and closing ceremonies, participation medal, public transport pass, goody bag, and discounts. You then select your sport, cultural event and parties on top of this. The Sport fee starts at 15 euro and up depending on the event. A reduced Outgames Experience Package fee is available for students.
