The Chicago Blackhawks and the NHL are making special arrangements to accommodate a request by the Chicago Gay Hockey Association's request to have the Stanley Cup and one of the Champion players attend the Chicago Gay Pride Parade.

Brent Sopel, a defenseman for the Stanley Cup Winning Blackhawks, and his family will march in the parade, with the Stanley Cup.

It's also worth noting that the Chicago Cubs will also have a float in the parade.

Major League Sports are notoriously unfriendly for gay men. So it is good to see something like this happen. Hopefully, it will help break down a few barriers.
