The Dodgers Are Having An LGBT Night

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Friday they would hold their first LGBT night. LGBT Night Out will be held September 29 against the Colorado Rockies and feature a yet to be announced “celebrity First Pitch” and the National Anthem performed by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles.

“We welcome all fans to Dodger Stadium throughout each season,” Dodgers executive VP and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen said in a statement. “We are especially proud to welcome and recognize the LGBT community of Los Angeles, an integral part of the city and of the Dodgers community.”

Other teams have begun holding LGBT nights, including the Houston Astros and Minnesota Twins.

In 2000, two women were ejected from a Dodgers game after kissing. The Dodgers organization later apologized and donated 5,000 tickets to three gay and lesbian organizations.
