MLB Teams Hosting Gay Nights, And Nobody Went Home With a Baseball Bat Smashed Into His Head

NBA teams may be coming up short on special celebratory nights for their gay fans, but professional baseball is managing to take the queers out to the ball game without incident.

Just a week or so after the Houston Astros hosted its first ever Pride Night that drew nearly 1,000 LGBTs and supporters, the Minnesota Twins introduced its “Out in the Stands” event. According to Lavender Magazine, which is Minnesota’s leading LGBT publication and the organizer of the event, more than 1,200 tickets were sold for the Friday, July 16, game against the Chicago White Sox. The $25 tickets sold for the Twins game included a pre- and post-party and a T-shirt. Both clubs also introduced the night during key matchups. The Twins faced the St. Louis Cardinals during its Pride Night.

Yes, but did tickets include a free subscription to America’s favorite anti-gay gay priest outing publication?

      Great news. We’ve had “gay days” at ML Baseball fields for a years, but usually sponsored by a bar or GLB Community Center — *not* the teams.

      Am a huge hockey fan here so I hope the NHL follows suit & okay yeah the NBA & NFL. The Chicago Blackhawks (y’know the Stanley Cup *winners*) had their first float at Chicago Pride this year.

      true story: i didn’t attend Chicago this year due to work BUT my lovely str8 Dominican aunt went and held up signs in English and Spanish saying I LUV My LGBT Family Members…. She has 4 of us.
      At least….

      She’s a licensed beautician & hair maven so she brought her big purse of magic like she does every year and helps anyone who needs it with hair & make up.

      She never asks for a dime but she’s really talented & always manages to come home with more dimes than she left with! Lol. She just likes making people pretty…….. She said the hockey guy was very cute & didn’t need any help !

      Good for baseball. But where is the NBA? Oh, I forgot, it’s basically a black sports. No surprise that black sports aren’t very welcoming of the concept of gay rights, is it? They’re probably more interested chasing whores and buying gold chains.

      @Jason: this is an honest question. May I quote you? I promise not to use your screen name or identify you otherwise, but those words are pure comedy gold & I need material for something I’m writing & producing,

      Since it’s been posted on a public forum, I don’t technically need to ask, but I try to be an honest guy, so please say yes!

      The best writers I know can’t create such gems.
