Titan partner with Chaleur Pride, Acadie Love for first Pride Night

The Acadie-Bathurst Titan are thrilled to announce our first Pride Night game on Friday, January 27 at 7 p.m., when we take on the Saint John Sea Dogs at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre. This will mark the first time in our 25-year history we’ve held a Pride Night, which the Titan Foundation is honoured to host alongside our partners Fierté Chaleur Pride and Acadie Love.

Our Acadie-Bathurst Titan players will have Pride-coloured hockey tape on their sticks throughout the game. Off the ice, you will find several information booths set-up around the concourse including but not limited to information and education about Chaleur Pride, Acadie Love, Chaleur Suicide Prevention and Mind at Peace Centre.

Fierté Chaleur Pride is an LGBTQ+ organization in the Chaleur New Brunswick region with fully bilingual programming. Its programming celebrates sexual and gender diversity by highlighting local culture. Join us during the New Brunswick Day long weekend to celebrate our second edition Aug. 4 to 6.

Acadie Love creates an inclusive, safe and welcoming Acadian Peninsula for the LGBTQ2+ community and their allies here and abroad. Celebrating sexual diversity, gender diversity and gender plurality, it raises awareness, educates and brings people together by sharing and supporting the community as a whole. Acadie Love’s mission is to promote inclusion, solidarity and awareness of LGBTQ2+ communities through celebration and education.

“I am very proud of the openness of our local team. Social acceptance of sexual, gender and sexual diversity in the world of sports is paramount. Thank you and congratulations to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan for this important first step!,” said Kevin J. Haché, president of the Rendez-vous de la fierté Acadie Love.

“From the minor hockey ranks to the National Hockey League, hockey organizations across Canada are working tirelessly to make the sport we love inclusive for everyone. We at the Acadie-Bathurst Titan strive for everyone to feel welcomed, loved, safe, accepted and included in our Titan family, and that is why we are excited to host Pride Night in partnership with Chaleur Pride and Acadie Love. This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to learn more from our local LGBTQ2+ community as we continue moving forward in acceptance and inclusivity,” said Titan Foundation Coordinator, Bryannah James.

The Titan are encouraging all of our fans and community to wear their Titan and Pride Colours to Friday’s game. See you at the rink!
