On November 28, the Trail Blazers together with Alaska Airlines hosted Rip City Pride. We were honored to celebrate diversity and inclusion with our LGBTQ2SIA+ friends and family. Fans were treated to performances from DJ Mister Charming, Portland Gay Men's Chorus and much more! Over $7,500 was raised for Q Center thanks to the generosity of Alaska Airlines and Trail Blazers fans. To learn more about Q Center and their work in our community, please visit pdxqcenter.org

"I'm very fortunate to be part of a night like this where we embrace diversity, equity and inclusion of all others. To have respect for people of different cultures, people of different backgrounds, different heritages, different frames of reference. Here in Portland it's something that sets us apart, and certainly it's important that we're all in this together."
- Trail Blazers Head Coach Terry Stotts
"Your support for our community wasn’t bashful. It was EVERYWHERE. It was on the screen with a welcoming message about Pride Night. It was at the pre-reception with the rainbow swag and fanny pack and noisemakers. I felt like, ‘THIS. This is the Blazers I can get behind and believe in.’"

We celebrated this year’s second annual Rip City Pride Night on November 18 as the Trail Blazers defeated the Sacramento Kings. The night’s 5050 raffle, silent auction and retail sales benefited the Q Center, raising more than $5,000 for the non-profit organization.
