The Perpetual Sisters of Indulgence may no longer be welcome at the Los Angeles’ Dodgers Pride Night, but they were invited to a Pride Night event that’s happening just 27 miles south.The mayor of nearby Anaheim invited the non-profit LGBTQ+ advocacy group, which uses humor and religious imagery to highlight anti-gay discrimination, to the Los Angeles Angels’ Pride Night June 7. “I’m inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to join me for @Angels Pride Night at Anaheim Stadium on June 7.
Pride should be inclusive and like many, I was disappointed in the Dodgers decision,” Mayor Ashleigh Aitken tweeted over the weekend.In an interview with ABC 7, Aitken said the Dodgers missed an opportunity to stand up for the LGBTQ+ community.“I think it was a missed opportunity to really err on the side of being inclusive and err on the side of standing up for our marginalized communities, especially on the eve of Harvey Milk Day.
Especially on the eve of Pride Month,” she said.???? I’m inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to join me for @Angels Pride Night at Anaheim Stadium on June 7.
