With LGBT Pride season heating up, teams in Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League are holding special nights for their fans.
In the MLS, 17 of the 23 teams have Pride nights on their schedule. In the NWSL, eight of the nine teams have such a night, with the holdout once again being the Washington Spirit, which has been a source of controversy. Ironically, the Spirit’s Joanna Lohman is lesbian and an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights.
