More than a month, it’s a way of life.
To celebrate Pride Month 2022, we got in touch with LA Creative and Angel City Football Club Host and Creator, Fish.
Their mission - to show everyone here at PARK what Pride means and how soccer can become a safe space for meaningful change.
So together with their friends, Fish has captured momentary snapshots into the burgeoning nexus of football and LA's LGBTQ+ community.

What does pride mean to you?
Pride means not hiding.
It's the inner voice that tells me I can hold my head high and walk into my fears when all I want to do is look down and avoid them.
It is the feeling I have now, supported by my friends and family living in what once was only my dream.

How has the game welcomed/empowered you on your journey in the LGBTQ+ community?
With Jackie Guerra (she/her)
How can we build the game to be a safe and inclusive space for our LGBTQ+ community?
We must be brave enough to create brands that embody the intention of non-binary, gender free soccer leagues and apparel.
Diversity is good.
And it’s healthy to be YOU.
