The Edmonton Riverhawks will be welcoming the Port Angeles Lefties on Saturday June 11th at RE/MAX Field in the river valley for a West Coast League matchup. The game begins at 7:05 PM and our doors for the pre-game celebrations will open at 6 pm. 

-We will have performances, dance-offs and anthems sung by the drag queens from Party Queens Edmonton

– MLA Janis Irwin will be one of our special guests and will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch

– The event is in collaboration with the organization strike out hate/pride tape. Here is a link to their website if you’re looking for some more specific details about the organization https://pridetape.com/about. It has a strong affiliation with MacEwan University and professor Kris Wells who specializes in topics including sexual and gender minority youth, education, health, sport, and culture and helped create the organization. We are also expecting the pride club from MacEwan to be in attendance to support the night. Jeff Maclean is also a key part of this event and he is the co-creator of Pride Tape as well. 

– There will be a DJ/music/dance party in the concourse before the game begins. 

– We will have many other pride activities such as a pride month acknowledgment, a pride photo backdrop & balloon archway where fans can take pictures with drag queens, kiss cams, pride interviews in between innings, videos on our screen about different pride groups, and pride-themed prizes/giveaways for contests etc.
