The Los Angeles Dodgers will again kick off LA Pride this year with LGBT Night at Dodger Stadium. The big event, which has been the largest LGBT or Pride Night in all of sports each of the last couple of years, takes place May 31 as the Dodgers host the Philadelphia Phillies.
Billie Jean King will throw out the opening pitch for the game. King and her partner, former tennis pro Ilana Kloss, are part owners of the Dodgers and are, as we hope you already know, living LGBTQ legends. The Los Angeles LGBT Center will also be honored with a Community Hero Award. There will be plenty of familiar faces at the game, including the cast of Queer Eye, as well as former MLB player and current MLB executive Billy Bean. The night is presented by Blue Shield of California.
“We are once again excited to work with so many incredible partners for our seventh annual LGBT Night at Dodger Stadium,” said Dodgers’ Senior Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Broadcasting Erik Braverman. “We look forward to creating a fun and memorable night as we strive to grow this annual event into the largest in all of professional sports. The Dodgers, with a long and well documented history of diversity, recognize the value of an inclusive environment.”
Outsports Pride will be held in Los Angeles the following week during the main LA Pride weekend, with the Dodgers as presenting sponsors of the event.
