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?
