It will also include Pride-themed lighting, and attendees will be able to get temporary Pride tattoos.
In 2013, France was the 13th country to make marriage equality for same-sex couples the law of the land.
In previous years, the US Open and Australian Open have celebrated the LGBTQ community in various ways, even if they don’t fall during Pride Month. Nick McCarvel, an out gay sports broadcaster and writer who focuses on tennis and Olympic sports, has been instrumental in creating this outreach at Grand Slams.
