Let’s Show Our Pride!
Friday, June 10
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds, 7:15pm

We hope everyone will join us to celebrate Pride at the baseball game! With every Pride Night ticket purchase, PFLAG Greater St. Louis will receive a donation from the Cardinals. PFLAG has purchased a limited number of tickets in a block for those who want to sit together with other PFLAGers. They are located in the First Base Terrace and are available first-come, first-serve at our cost. See below to order tickets. Please contact Emily Henze at emily.henze@gmail.com for more information including assistance with ticket costs for those who might need it.

Last but not least, everyone is invited to join us for a pre-game gathering near the stadium. More details to come so watch for future announcements.

To purchase tickets in the PFLAG block, e-mail Emily Henze to get the instructions to order (emily.henze@gmail.com).
To purchase Pride Night tickets directly from the Cardinals, go to cardinals.com/pride.

Go Cards!

Themed tickets include an awesome short-sleeved Cardinals Pride hoodie this year.

What Can I Do?!

Organizations like PROMO are doing a lot of work to make it easier for the rest of us to know what’s happening and it doesn’t take much time at all to contact your representatives with the tools they’ve created. If that’s not enough, there are opportunities to share your personal story and testify before the legislature. Here are some tools to keep track of what’s going on and make your voice heard:

  • Find your legislators

  • Track current legislation that affects the LGBTQ+ community in Missouri – regular updates from PROMO highlight what’s happening in Jeff City and include simple messages you can deliver to your representatives

  • Bill tracker provides detailed information about upcoming hearings and legislative news about specific bills making their way through the legislative process – you choose daily or weekly updates

  • Share your story or testify before MO lawmakers – you can sign up with PROMO to let our lawmakers know how both pro-equality and anti-LGBTQ bills will affect our children and our families. Scroll halfway down the page to the sign up form.

  • Finally, TransParent has created an Advocacy 101 Guide that is very helpful if you’re just starting down the path of political advocacy. Check it out!

In the face of all the anti-LGBTQ legislation coming at us these days, we hope these resources inspire you to get more politically active and make it easier for you to know what to do.

Drag Queen Story Hour!

PFLAG Greater St. Louis, The Novel Neighbor, and the Opera Theater of St. Louis hosted Drag Queen Story Hour on Sunday 4/10 for a fabulous and family-friendly event celebrating the legacy of Harvey Milk!

Kara Lagerfeld (Miss Gay Gateway Missouri) read “Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag” by Rob Sanders and acclaimed artist Tiélere Cheatem led an interactive session with the children to create their own Pride Flag to celebrate what makes them unique. Check out pictures from the amazing day!

Follow us on Facebook, join a meeting or virtual program, or contact us to volunteer. We look forward to seeing or hearing from you!
