Pride Month

MLS, players announce donations to Athlete Ally during Pride month

In celebration of Pride Month, Major League Soccer and its players have announced donations to Athlete Ally, a nonprofit LGBTQ athletic advocacy group. 

“As part of Major League Soccer’s long-standing support of the LGBTQ+ community, and in celebration of Pride month in June, the league will make a contribution to Athlete Ally, an organization supporting equal access, opportunity, and experience in sports — regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression,” Major League Soccer said in a statement.

A number of players are also offering their support via Playing for Pride, a movement started by former MLS player Austin da Luz.
