"We're excited about this season's league-wide Pride initiatives," said Sky President and CEO Adam Fox. "The LGBT community has been an important part of our organization for years. The opportunity to host the first nationally televised Pride game as a platform for encouraging diversity, inclusion and acceptance is a privilege for our team."

The Chicago Sky will participate in events throughout the month of June as part of their annual celebration of Pride. Sky players and staff will walk in the Chicago PRIDE Parade and take part in post-game meet-n-greets with fans at Hamburger Mary's in Andersonville and Mini Bar in Lakeview. Following the game on June 22, the Sky will host a post-game networking event and panel discussion featuring AthleteAlly founder and CEO, Hudson Taylor and Stanford guard Toni Kokenis (Oakbook, IL native).

Tickets for the Sky PRIDE game start as low as $17. A portion of all PRIDE ticket packages will be donated to Equality Illinois. The Sky has also partnered with Nike to promote their #BeTrue campaign and surprise fans with giveaways at this historic game.

The WNBA will be the first professional sports league to establish an integrated marketing, media, grassroots and social responsibility program for the LGBT community. The programming includes a new special site, WNBA.com/pride where league and team Pride content, events and schedules will be posted throughout the season. Information will also be shared on the league's social media channels where the content will be aggregated with the hashtag #wnbapride.
