The Los Angeles Rams is celebrating Pride month with a series of events in support of the LGBTQ+ community. This includes a partneship with Hamburger Mary’s WeHo for a themed Bingo Night tomorrow, Wednesday, June 23, 2021, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. PT. The Los Angeles football team is also kicking off a partnership with WeHo’s Varsity Gay League.
The Rams Cheerleaders will join Hamburger Mary’s famous drag queens to host Bingo and a live auction. The first 90 attendees will receive a Rams Pride t-shirt, and a portion of the proceeds raised during the event will benefit the You Can Play Project, which has partnered with the Sports Equality Foundation to help ensure safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, including LGBTQ+ athletes, coaches and fans.
You Can Play Project creates a community of allies that is able to foster a true sense of belonging. It seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by developing a culture of respect, in every player, coach and fan.
This coming Saturday, the team will also announce a partnership with the Varsity Gay League (VGL), which is one of the original queer recreational sports organizations in Los Angeles. While VGL offers a variety of sports year-round, the Rams are supporting their expansion by sponsoring their first flag football division this fall. It will host game day watch parties throughout the season for VGL participants at the up and coming Gym Sports Bar and Grill, VGL’s official league bar in West Hollywood.
Founded in 2007, VGL proudly represents over 25,000 LGBTQIA+ and allied athletes across the US. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience or identity. Whether you are a professional athlete, casual gamer, or wallflower, all are included.
The Rams will also host a celebratory kickoff party at Poinsettia Park located at 7341 Willoughby Ave, on Saturday, June 26 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. PT.
