The Advocate reports that the organizers of the 2006 Gay Games in Chicago will launch a new Website,, on Friday. The site's up already (although registration for the games doesn't start until June), so you can peruse the list of upcoming events (mostly fundraising and volunteer meetings for now) and information for people who would like to volunteer.
