    Come with Us to San Francisco Giants’ LGBT Night!

    The San Francisco Bay Times and “Betty’s List” are very proud to once again be partnering with the San Francisco Giants for their annual LGBT Night. This year’s event will be on Wednesday, June 12, with the Pre-Game Party starting at 4:30 pm before the Giants take on the San Diego Padres at 6:45 pm.

    Our tickets are available in the Club Level and View Reserve Infield locations and include a limited-edition wearable Giants Pride flag. Partial proceeds will be donated to support the LGBT media projects of the Use the News Foundation, a 501c3 organization co-founded by San Francisco Bay Times publisher Dr. Betty Sullivan in 1998. The Giants for this special event are also partnering with the Federation of Gay Games, the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, San Francisco Pride and Horizons Foundation.

    The Giants have long supported our community. In 1994, for example, they became the first ever professional sports team to host an HIV/AIDS awareness game. They were also the first pro sports team to participate in the It Gets Better Campaign, thanks to legendary figures such as Matt Cain, Barry Zito, Sergio Romo and Hensley Meulens.

    In 2002, the Giants launched their LGBT Night, becoming one of the few teams that does not rely on an external group to organize the event. GLAAD awarded the Giants the 2013 Corporate Leader Award in recognition of the team’s activism. Even former President Obama recognized their support for the LGBT community.

    As you sit and cheer at Oracle Park, also consider that the stadium was the first to install solar panels. That happened back in 2007. Three years later, the U.S. Green Building Council recognized the park for its sustainability. These efforts include diverting waste from landfills to recycling plants, having environmentally friendly concession stands, promoting sustainable transportation and more
