Lesbians Told ‘Stop Kissing’ At Seattle Mariners Pride Game

Lesbian couple 'Told To Stop Kissing' At Seattle Mariners Pride Game

Hey there, baseball fans and equality supporters! Let’s talk about something that recently happened at a Seattle Mariners game – it’s a mix of baseball, love, and a bit of controversy.

So, picture this: It’s August 19, and the Seattle Mariners are playing against the Milwaukee Brewers at Safeco Field. It’s not just any game – it’s the team’s very first Pride Night, a special evening celebrating the LGBTQ community. Among the fans are Mary McHale and Sara Hinton, a same-sex couple from Seattle, thrilled to support their home team.

After the game, while waiting for their ride outside the stadium, Mary and Sara share a kiss. It was a sweet moment, nothing out of the ordinary. But then, a Safeco Field employee approached them with a shocking request: “Ladies, I’m gonna have to ask you to stop.” They were told that their kissing might lead to them being asked to leave, all because of a so-called “family-friendly policy.”

Can you believe that? At a Pride Night game, no less!

Now, here’s where it gets better. The Seattle Mariners, aware of the incident, stepped up. Rebecca Hale, a spokesperson for the Mariners, spoke to local radio station KUOW and issued a public apology. She admitted that the security guard was out of line and confirmed they had been disciplined.

Rebecca emphasized, “We have LGBTQ fans, and we want them to feel most welcome here at Safeco Field.” She acknowledged that recent staff actions had raised doubts in the community and expressed sincere regret.

But it’s not just about apologies – it’s about action. The Mariners are now looking to revamp their Safeco Field Code of Conduct and train their 1,300 staff members. The goal? Make the ballpark a more welcoming place for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

So, what do you think about this incident? Let us know your thoughts, and remember, love is love, especially at the ballpark!
