Minnesota Timberwolves And Lynx Celebrate 2019 Twin Cities Pride
On Sunday, members of the Timberwolves and Lynx teams and staff marched in Twin Cities Pride Parade in downtown Minneapolis.
The Pride Parade is an important day for many people in the Twin Cities and Wolves and Lynx communities and it was great to see so many players, coaches and front office members out to support.

Wearing rainbow Timberwolves and Lynx shirts and waving flags, a fantastic time was had by all. Pride means many different things to different people and the parade was a high-energy and upbeat celebration of being who you are.

While, as always, hate reared its ugly head on Twitter. Wolves player Mitch Creek was quick to shoot it down.
I don’t understand some of the negativity around the PRIDE Parade etc, just because it isn’t your cup of tea doesn’t mean you need to be disrespectful.
If we each looked into each other’s lives we’d all find things we don’t see eye to eye on.
Be Yourself & Be Happy!
