Serving Pride initiative |  May 9, 2024

What is the Serving Pride initiative?
Following another successful AO Club Pride Night initiative held in January, clubs will once again have the opportunity to participate under the Serving banner between the months of June and September Pride.

These activations tie in with Pride Month in June and give clubs the opportunity to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Why Pride Month?
LGBTQ+ Pride Month is currently celebrated every year in the month of June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, USA. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States and has now become a global event to commemorate the events that occurred as a result and to advocate for the inclusion of people who identify as LGBTQ+ at all levels, regardless of whether that is the case. being active on the labor market and in sports.
