Celebrate Pride Night at Progressive Field on June 25

The Cleveland Guardians are excited to celebrate and honor Pride Month! Throughout June, the Cleveland Guardians will be participating in local Pride Month festivities to celebrate and uplift the LGBTQ+ community in Cleveland. The celebration will include our annual Pride Night at Progressive Field on Saturday, June 25.

As part of our on-going on-going efforts to become a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization, the Guardians will also be working in partnership with local community organizations to provide on-going learning and education to our staff and teammates throughout the entire year. While we seek to uplift the voices and experience of our LGBTQ+ community 365-days a year, we know that flagship events like Pride allow us to intentionally spotlight the collective stories of hope, struggle, and opportunity that make our city and team better.
