To kick off Pride Month, Luis Barraza, Keaton Parks and Brad Stuver volunteered at CITC’s Saturday Night Lights (SNL) program on May 17. The trio joined local youth in mini-soccer games and took part in a discussion around LGBTQ issues before helping to tie-dye gear for the group to wear to NYCFC’s Pride Match.
For the third year in a row, New York City FC will be hosting a Pride Match on Thursday, June 6 as the home team takes on FC Cincinnati at 7:00 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium. The date for this year’s Pride Match falls at the beginning of Pride Month, during which the city will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, fittingly NYC will host WorldPride, the largest Pride celebration across the globe. As the City’s soccer team, NYCFC will play its part to pay tribute to the important event.
