    "Why Pride Tape?

    Now more than ever, people should be free to love whoever they choose. Yet most LGBTQ youth still don't feel welcome playing team sports. These kids don't have many professionals to look up to—and for young hockey players, there are no "out" role models at all. So how can the hockey world show their support with pride? With a simple roll of tape.

    Pride Tape is a badge of support from the teammates, coaches, parents and pros to young LGBTQ players. It shows every player that they belong on the ice. That we’re all on the same team. And we need your help to make it a reality.

    When Pride Tape is up and running, proceeds will support LGBTQ youth outreach initiatives, such as You Can Play and the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services. That means every roll of tape will make an impact on and off the ice.

    Pride Tape is ready to be made. It's pro quality hockey stick tape, with six colours that could mean the world to a young athlete. You can help make it happen."
