Los Angeles Dodgers Cancel Plans to Honor Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence During Pride Celebrations
Los Angeles, CA – In a surprising turn of events, the Los Angeles Dodgers have made the decision to cancel their plans to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence during their upcoming Pride Night promotion on June 16.
The team cited “controversy” surrounding the invite as the reason behind their decision.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a popular drag group, was founded in San Francisco in 1977 and has members in cities all over the world, including Los Angeles.
Known for their elaborate costumes and commitment to activism, the Sisters have been a staple of Pride celebrations for decades.
The Dodgers did not provide an exact reason for their decision, but they took to Twitter to address the issue.
In a tweet, the team stated, “Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the Sisters’ inclusion in our evening and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we’ve seen over the years of Pride Night, we have decided to uninvite them.”
This cancellation has sparked disappointment among members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, who saw the inclusion of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as a celebration of diversity and inclusion.
Many supporters argue that the group has played a significant role in raising awareness about LGBTQ+ rights and promoting acceptance.
The decision by the Dodgers raises questions about the delicate balance between honoring diverse voices within the LGBTQ+ community and appeasing potential critics.
Pride Night events have traditionally served as a platform for celebrating the progress made in the fight for equality, and the exclusion of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is seen by some as a step backward.
As of now, the Dodgers have not announced any alternative plans to replace the Sisters’ involvement in their Pride Night celebrations.
It remains to be seen how this decision will impact the overall atmosphere and inclusivity of the event.
