    (CNN)LGBTQ athletes have a place to call their own in the Olympic Village in Pyeongchang.

    It's called the Pride House, a building in the village that's a safe space for gay and lesbian athletes, their friends, family and supporters.
    The first Pride House popped up during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and since then they have appeared at a number of international sporting events, including the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in London and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, Brazil.
