CV NEWS FEED // The Los Angeles Dodgers this June will present an award to The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic troupe of pro-LGBTQ activist drag performers.
On Friday, June 16, the Dodgers will partner with LA Pride to host a 10th annual LGBTQ night at Dodgers Stadium before a matchup with the San Francisco Giants.
LA Pride is a nonprofit advocacy group whose “mission is to create safe and inclusive spaces of self-expression, celebration, and diversity/equity/inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community of Greater Los Angeles.” LA Pride hosts one of the largest pride parades and festivals in the country.
At the pre-game event, a “Community Hero Award” will be presented to the LA Chapter of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The men dress in grotesque costumes styled after the garb of Catholic nuns and mock the faith with the motto “Go forth and sin some more!”
Former tennis stars and lesbian couple Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss will present the award. They are co-owners of the Dodgers.
“The Dodgers have always championed diversity and inclusion as core values, said Erik Braverman, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Communications, Community Relations, and Broadcasting.
We’re thrilled to unite with LA Pride and our community partners for an unforgettable celebration that shines a spotlight on the strength and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. Together, we’ll continue to knock down barriers and foster an atmosphere of acceptance for all.
A “charity” raffle will be held to support the LA LGBT Center, which receives most of its funding from the government. The center calls itself an “unstoppable force.” According to its website, it provides aid for half a million people a year in the form of “health, social services and housing, culture and education, leadership and advocacy.”
