IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 INFORMATION (released Friday, March 13, 2020; updated Monday, November 9, 2020): On Monday October 5, 2020, the Board of Directors of Out of Bounds New York City decided to continue the suspension all official NYC LGBT Sports Network operations, including physical in-person events, until further notice. We will not be scheduling any social events until public spaces, bars and restaurants fully reopen in New York City and are deemed safe for large gatherings (see Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Order “New York State on P.A.U.S.E.” for more information). This fall, we will be promoting and co-sponsoring both virtual and in-person events produced by the LGBTQ+community.
