Pride sports: More balls than we can handle but worth the try


The Utah Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, the Utah Jazz, and the Utah Pride Center have teamed up to celebrate the LGBTQ community. For some this is not a concert, but rather a basketball game (although the term “swish” is often used). Pride Night on February 23 encourages rainbow colors while roping the unbranded Dallas Mavericks. Now, while that being said, it’s highly possible those Texans may rope us into submission,

Of course, on our knee (during the National Anthem) we also will be encouraged to eat cotton candy … and maybe Skittles. Anyhoo, the Facebook event page says Utah Pride organizations will be recognized on the court before the game. And tickets also include VIP Early Entry Passes and court-side photo opportunities.

Also, the UGLCC is reserving a Skybox Suite, with a number provided for those who want to reserve a seat. There are just a few hundred seats left — purchase group tickets here.


The Salt Lake Stallions are a professional American football team based in Salt Lake City and are charter members of the Alliance of American Football. Set to be coached by Dennis Erickson, 2019 marks the inaugural season and they get to be part of the action on the 100-yards against the Arizona Hotshots … welcome to Fireball!

Click on the link and use “STALLIONPRIDE” as your code for discounted tickets. $1 from each ticket sold using that code is going directly back to supporting the LGBTQ community, this is a win-win! And with the Stallions on the field, that’ll be another win!
