The Colorado Avalanche do not have a great track record when it comes to their annual Pride Night. Last year’s was barely an event at all, and I hope that the organisation can learn from that and grow.
As a member of the LGBTQ community myself, I have a vested interest in seeing Pride Night done well. Hockey is not exactly known for embracing the diverse. The players, coaching staff and management are by and large white, male and heterosexual. Even with the initiative from the NHL to have a month dedicated to inclusivity some teams in the go all in, but others do the bare minimum and sometimes even less than that.
