Chicago’s Wrigley Field was the host venue for the closing ceremony of Gay Games VII in July 2006.
Participant athletes entered the field to the cheers of about 25,000 people.
Mayor Richard Daley helped transfer the Gay Games flag to the deputy mayor of Cologne, Germany for the next Games in 2010.
The star singer for the event was Cyndi Lauper, dressed as Miss Liberty in rainbow attire.
