The Dodgers are scheduled to play host for the LGBT community on Friday, May 31st, and the evening just got a little more exciting.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center, a group fighting for LGBT equality and wellness, is going to be honored with a very special award. The Center will receive the Community Hero Award for their service to the community.

The first pitch of the evening will be thrown out by part-owner Billie Jean King, and several special guests will be in attendance. The cast and creators of the hit Netflix show Queer Eye will be there, as well as Bill Bean, a former Dodger who came out as gay in 1999.

Pride night at Dodgers stadium has become somewhat of a tradition, and this year’s event seems to be particularly special. Fans who purchase the ticket package will also receive an exclusive LGBT Nigh duffle bag with a Dodgers’ logo.

  1. Brook,
    This is the (expletive deleted) person whose remarks like this one and two others this week should be censored. One was misogynistic (the day Urias was reinstated) and the remark the day before was just gratuitously vulgar.
    Why don’t you at least have the courtesy to address my objection?

  2. NODH has struck again!!!! These “messages” should not be allowed on this board for several reasons : 1) people of ALL ages read these posts; 2) on a board such as this, his message is hurtful, serves no purpose, and is designed to get the author attention; and 3) who one sleeps with is secondary to the purpose of this board – Dodger baseball. Go Blue!!!
