NEW YORK GAY GAMES ORGANIZERS "STRUGGLING" TO PAY OFF DEBT
Published April 4, 1995
Vendors and merchants are waiting on organizers of last year's Gay Games in New York for "about a half-million dollars owed by the organizers," according to the N.Y. POST. The Games brought an estimated $400M-$450M to the city's economy, more than double what the World Cup brought in for the same week, according to the city's comptroller. Ian Gazes, the Games' organizing group's lawyer, says they failed to make the money expected from things like licencing fees and souvenirs (Bryna Taubman, N.Y. POST, 4/4).
