The Dodgers Pride Night controversy in Los Angeles may be coming to an end. After a lot of backlash over who was invited or not, it looks like the group has officially invited the so-called Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence back to the ballpark for Pride Night.
The group first invited them before receiving a lot of backlash. As a result, they decided to remove the invitation and bar the group from participating in the festivities. However, after thinking more carefully, they decided to invite the group again.

The team said in a statement:
“After so much insight from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the organization, and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to apologize. Our sincerest condolences to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.”
“We asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16. We are pleased to share that they have agreed. acknowledge our collective community’s gratitude for the lifesaving work they have tirelessly done over the decades.”
This group is mostly men dressed as nuns and uses religious imagery to call attention to bigotry and other social issues related to gender and sexuality. They are one somewhat controversial group, but the group chose to allow them to participate in Pride Night.
