Dignity Attends Night Out with the Nationals

On June 17 dozens of Dignity/Washington baseball fans joined thousands more at the 11th annual Night OUT at the Nationals game that continues to be the largest LGBT event in major league sports. According to local media reports, Night OUT at the Nationals ticket sales have plateaued at 3,500 to 4,000 and the evening, always held the week following Capital Pride, has become a social event for some and a chance to watch a Nationals game with members of their own community for others. This year the Nats played the Tampa Bay Rays (and lost 5-0). Honorees at this year’s game included Dignity/Washington’s own Bernie Delia who serves as Capital Pride President and in the past have included Daniel Hernandez in 2011, the brave gay intern who helped to save the life of Rep. Gabby Giffords following the Arizona shootings.
