It appears we have gotten some pretty prevalent coverage in the last few days. Why? We asked members of the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks to show their support of the LGBT community by participating alongside with us in the annual Pride P
arade in Chicago on Sunday, June 27th, 2010. In an annual tradition since our inception, we have skated in the parade to raise awareness of our organization and get new people interested in hockey. While it would be an amazing experience for some of the star players to show up, we would love to see any member of the organization show their support, and that of the Chicago Blackhawks, by attending along side our organization in the parade.
