Text:People from 26 countries have registered to compete at the AsiaPacific Outgames, which open in Wellington next Saturday. The 26 countries that will be represented are: American Samoa, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Fiji, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Samoa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Tonga, United Kingdom, USA and Vanuatu. Of the participants, 42 per cent are female, 53 per cent are male, and there are 21 trans women, 15 trans men, as well as intersex people and others who identify in different ways. "At these big events around the world, men typically make up two thirds or more of participants," says Outgames Co-chair David Hindley. "We have worked hard to make sure that there is a bit more balance, and we are thrilled it has paid off." Daily News staff - 5th March 2011
