San Francisco Giants Pride Hat

Pride Hats For the San Francisco Giants

Baseball fans worldwide celebrate Pride Month each June by wearing team logos in rainbow hues – making the San Francisco Giants even more special by being the first MLB team to include pride colors into its logo caps – something which was made official Tuesday ahead of Saturday’s LGBT Pride Night matchup against Chicago Cubs.

Hats designed in black feature a rainbow version of the Giants’ SF logo and are inspired by the Progress Pride flag, with 11 colors representing LGBT, transgender and marginalized communities of color including red (life); orange (healing); yellow (sunlight); green (nature); blue (serenity); purple (spirit); black and brown (LGBTQ+ people of color) and pink and white (transgenders).

Giants President Farhan Zaidi strengthened his support of LGBTQ community this week as MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred was under attack from religious conservatives who believe Pride-themed events hosted by teams are not “appropriate”. Zaidi made his comments at the conclusion of a conference call with reporters following Owners Meetings where this topic was raised by several reporters.

As part of their Pride Night and LGBTQIA+ and transgender communities celebration, the Giants will host several events supporting Pride Night. A special fundraising auction and Pride parade are planned. In addition, Oracle Park will hold a LGBTQIA and transgender leadership meeting where community leaders can discuss how best to serve Oracle Park communities; sponsor LYRIC (LGBTQ youth organization that organized parade) while holding pregame ceremonies with representatives from LYRIC to raise the LGBTQIA and transgender flags on the field.

The Giants are also marking the 10th anniversary of their LGBT employee resource group, the Giants Gay and Lesbian Employee Resource Center. GGRC strives to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace environment for its employees through numerous initiatives that include providing education and training, creating peer mentor networks, as well as being advocates for its members.

Other events at Oracle Park will include a pregame flag raising by the LGBTQ Caucus and an in-game performance by DJ Dreams, an Oakland resident music artist for Crybaby Oakland who is widely respected Bay Area transgender DJ. In addition, Giants are offering limited-edition rainbow-colored Giants Pride caps to the first 20,000 fans who enter via O’Doul Gate; bases will feature Pride colors decorations; rainbow Pride artwork by Nancy Cato of Cato Productions will grace K boards used to signal strikes; K boards used signal strikeouts will feature rainbow artwork by Nancy Cato of Cato Productions K boards used to signal strikes; free Pride-themed posters will also be given away throughout the park!
