The LA Dodgers celebrated LA Pride on Friday night, and so did some of the fans who were caught on the Dodger Stadium’s “Kiss Cam” sharing the love.
Gay, straight, young and old. At least seven of those caught giving a kiss were same-sex couples.
Friday was the fifth annual LGBT night at Dodger Stadium. For the first time ever, the Dodgers partnered with Christopher Street West, the non-profit that puts on the annual Pride event.
The night featured a first pitch by Golden Globe Award-winning actor Matt Bomer. Bomer has been married to publicist Simon Halls since 2011, and the couple has three sons, including a set of twins. In 2012, Bomer was given an Inspiration Award for his work at the GLSEN Awards. He is an LGBT rights activist.
Other special guests were Billy Bean (Major League Baseball vice president and special assistant to the commissioner); Brian Pendleton (founder of Resist March), who also threw out a first pitch, actor Noah Galvin (best known for his role as Kenny O’Neal on the ABC sitcom “The Real O’Neals”); actor Guillermo Diaz (currently starring as Huck in the ABC series “Scandal”) and Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, best known for being plaintiffs in the landmark case that wound its way to the U.S. Supreme Court successfully overturning Prop. 8 and restoring marriage equality to California.
