PCA at Gay Games
What we do and why we do it:
PCA organizes cheerleading appearances at Opening Ceremonies, at Closing Ceremonies, at cultural demonstrations and festivals, at Gay Games community gathering areas, and at various sporting events to cheer on other athletes!
PCA also hosts a Charitable Cheerleading Competition - now a List A Sport at Gay Games. The recognition of Cheerleading as a sport is important. The involvement in competitive sports does wonders for mental and physical well-being. Cheerleaders of all kinds deserve to be recognized as athletes and deserve every opportunity to derive mental and physical joy from their athletic endeavors.
When charitable cheerleaders activate, a major goal is to raise funds for charity! We give back to the causes that allow LGBTQ+ athletics to grow and flourish. We give back to the local communities in which we perform!
PCA governs Cheerleading at Gay Games and encourages volunCHEERleaders from all over to participate for these main purposes:
to support LGBTQ+ athletics, to support the LGBTQ+ community, to further LGBTQ+ causes worldwide, and, as the motto of Gay Games goes, to experience PARTICIPATION, INCLUSION, and strive for PERSONAL BEST!
