Maple Leafs First NHL Team to Host a Drag Show at Their Game

The Toronto Maple Leafs hosted a Pride Night during their game against the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. While they took a 4-2 win, what was most notable was the team's decision not to wear Pride jerseys during warmups.

Instead, they chose to let their actions speak for themselves. In a bold move, the Maple Leafs hosted the NHL's first drag show during intermission in the arena's hallway.


This decision showcased the team's support for the LGBTQ+ community, and demonstrated that they are willing to go beyond the typical expressions of allyship to create a more inclusive environment in hockey. The event was a great success and sets a positive example for other teams to follow.
