The Los Angeles Dodgers' Pride Night drew a usual turnout on Friday, despite protests from religious groups. The event, which was the 10th annual Pride Night at Dodger Stadium, featured a number of activities, including a pre-game ceremony, a rainbow-colored Dodgers logo, and a performance by David Archuleta.
The pre-game ceremony featured a number of speakers, including Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, former Dodgers outfielder Billy Bean, and members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The Sisters are a Catholic-inspired order of drag queens and transgender people who work to promote acceptance and understanding of the LGBTQ+ community.
The Dodgers also wore rainbow-colored caps and jerseys during the game, and the Dodgers Foundation donated 50% of the proceeds from the 50/50 raffle to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
The protests against the Dodgers' Pride Night were organized by a group called the Los Angeles Catholic Coalition. The group's leaders said that they were protesting the Dodgers' "promotion of a lifestyle that is contrary to Catholic teaching."
Despite the protests, the Dodgers' Pride Night drew a usual turnout. The event was a celebration of diversity and inclusion, and it was a reminder that the Dodgers are committed to creating a welcoming environment for all fans.
