LGBT Network and the New York Islanders host Pride Night
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.
