Lions will face Josh Robinson and the Vikings for LGBT Pride night this year 

James Felton Keith, CEO of the organization, said the group will host what he believes is the first LGBT pride night in the NFL Oct. 25 during the Lions’ game against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field.

“It means a lot, in particular the support and rapid response from (the organization),” Keith said. “It means the world, actually. I think, as the Chamber of Commerce we’re usually the boring LGBT group. We’re the suits in the back of the room just trying to make sure that things are moving along. But these large sporting events play into our InDetroit campaign (and) our Inclusive Detroit campaign, which primarily affects the large corporations in the area. But these sports franchises are some of the
largest corporations in the area and they affect the overall social sentiment.”

This is interesting after Josh Robinson’s comments last week about gay marriage.
