The Fresno Grizzlies are sponsoring a gay pride night tommorrow night at Chukchansi Stadium against the Sacramento River Cats at 7:05pm. I had to read this twice yesterday and triple checked again this morning to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me. I give the Grizzlies organization a big shout and a lot of credit for publicly supporting the gay and lesbian community. It speaks well of their corporate leadership to embrace and include all Fresnans and Central Valley residents.
Here is some copy from their website:
Chukchansi Park is a place where everyone is welcome. As a pillar for the community, we embrace everyone. No matter where you came from. No matter who you are. You have nothing to fear. We are all under this Bear Flag together.#LetThatBearFlagFly
Special theme jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit Common Space. More than 22 non-profit organizations serving the LGBTQ+ community in Fresno will join the Grizzlies for booths on Pride Night.
