The Chicago White Sox will play host to Equality Illinois' LGBT pride night "Out at the Sox" this Saturday, Aug. 29, for their game against the Seattle Mariners.

Ticket prices are $35, or for $45 you can receive a game ticket and entry to Equality Illinois' pre-game party at Replay Lakeview (3439 N. Halsted), which will feature giveaways, drink tickets and food. A portion of all proceeds goes directly to Equality Illinois. Charlie Rice-Minoso, son of White Sox great Minnie Minoso, is a big supporter of the event and will be in attendance.

Since Chicago has two MLB teams, the city is blessed to have two of these events now every year: Out At Wrigley with the Chicago Cubs is annually one of the largest LGBT events with a Major League Baseball team.

You can find Out at the Sox on Facebook or buy tickets through Equality Illinois. Also check out this short film made last year in response to some "backlash" against the 2014 Out at the Sox event:
