Morehead is a fantastic novel about Dave Morehead, a young man living in San Francisco during the height of the sexual revolution in the late 1970s to the mid-80s, told from the perspective of journals, classroom assignments, and transcribed audio recordings.“We are proud to acknowledge the legacy of the Gay Games and to recognise the importance of the cultural elements of the games. As Limerick prepares to become the National City of Culture for 2014, we feel that this event is a perfect combination of the rich history that is present in our city and attached with the Federation of Gay Games.”Limerick recently played host to a delegation of FGG site inspectors who visited the proposed venues to decide if Limerick should be chosen as the host city of the 2018 Gay Games.If the Limerick bid is successful, The White House bar is the proposed venue for the Poetry Slam event which will form part of the Gay Games’ range of cultural activities.
