Gays love their pro jocks, right? Right. And now, increasingly among Atlanta's pro sports franchises, they love us back. The latest is the Atlanta Silverbacks, who host an LGBT Pride Night on June 22, just four days after the Atlanta Braves.
Boston's LGBT community will receive special recognition in the Fenway neighborhood on Thursday night, as Fenway Park hosts its first ever "Pride Night." The number of cities that have never hosted a "gay night" at a ballpark has to be super low at this point. Strange that Boston would be one of the last to do it.
I loved Collin's acceptance speech of his GLSEN Courage Award. What I particularly liked is how he acknowledged the people who paved the way for him -- some of whom he named. Acknowledging their contribution to all of our paths is so important.
