The Atlanta Braves will host a Sept. 13 game to benefit Georgia Equality, the state's largest LGBT advocacy organization, in what is being called “Out in the Stands.”
Georgia Equality and members from PFLAG (Parents, Families, & Friends of Lesbians and Gays) met with Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz after pitching coach Roger McDowell was accused of using anti-gay slurs toward fans in San Francisco over Easter weekend.
McDowell allegedly shouted, "Are you a homo couple or a threesome?" at fans and imitated a sex act using a baseball bat. He was suspended and publicly apologized for the incident.
A portion of the Sept. 13 ticket sales will benefit Georgia Equality, the organization said today. Tickets must be purchased through Dennette Thorton (404.614.1493 or [email protected]) by Sept. 9.
