New York Mets To Host First LGBT Pride Night

From the New York Post:

The Mets will host the team’s first ever Pride Night at Citi Field this season, as the latest major New York team to have such a night after the Islanders hosted an LGBT-themed night this month. The Mets in the past have hosted events from Fiesta Latina night to Jewish Heritage Day. Other major league teams have hosted LGBT nights.

The Mets will unveil details at a press conference Tuesday, with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Rep. Steve Israel and LGBT Network CEO David Kilmnick. “I’m proud to be making this announcement — one, as a lifelong Met fan, and two, we get to beat the Yankees on this,” Kilmnick joked to us.
