On February 3rd, the LGBT Network and the New York Islanders hosted Pride Night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Thousands filled the arena with rainbow flags in-hand, to cheer on the Islanders and show their pride. Before the Islanders took the ice, Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth alum, Angela Reteguiz kicked off the fireworks with a stunning performance of the National Anthem. The arena’s video screens and scoreboards lit up in rainbow colors throughout the night as the Islanders one-upped the Columbus Blue Jackets, winning 4-3. Pride Night ticket holders received a complementary Islanders Pride Night scarf and were invited onto the ice after the game for an opportunity to commemorate the occasion with a group photo.
