The San Francisco Gay Basketball Program has been the hub in which many local players have met and have formed successful tournament teams.
San Francisco has always been one of the larger presences in tournaments and continually fields some of the best basketball teams in the 20+ years of gay basketball history. Since the first Gay Games in 1982, San Francisco teams have brought home the basketball gold four of the seven Gay Games (1982, 1990, 1998, 2006), silver in two (1986, 1994), and one bronze medal (1990). Not to mention other tournaments that they have brought home trophies, both domestic and international.
