“I think what pride really means to me is that we want everyone to know that they are welcome at a Sun game. It doesn’t matter who you love, the color of your skin, where you come from or what your background is, when you come to the Arena, we are there to collectively cheer on our team,” said Sun vice-president Amber Cox.

It wasn’t always that way and, Davis fears, with the political climate in Washington, D.C., it won’t always be that way.

When i first stared going to Liberty games years ago ...
I noticed how diverse the fans were ...Gay/Straight...Black/White
Young/Old...all religions
All the fans were friendly and I loved taking my daughter
and showing her how well different people could get along
and have fun. I have made many friends at Liberty games

Great article indeed. None of us are here to judge anyone. I think more coaches in the wnba and and college ball plus other sports should come out. There are and has been many others there. For those who are gay, including college and wnba and Nba players, should just live their life and not be ashamed or scared to come out. I applaud those who do.
