Torch Pride 2022
The Torch Marches For Pride
We asked Torch co-owner and player Rachel Yeager to share the team's perspective on their 2022 Pride fundraising apparel.
Our team loves spreading our love for love and rainbows around here as over half of our roster is part of the LGBTQ+ community!
We are excited to have an even more inclusive design this season for Pride, and to show kids and everyone else in TX and beyond that trans lives matter.
I know a lot of us Torchies will be ready to wear these at the Austin pride parade in August in support of queer youth in Texas.
Join us by picking up a piece of Torch Pride apparel in our official merchandise shop. The Torch is donating its 15% revenue share to TENT, and VC is matching our donation.
About Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT)
The Austin Torch is proud to benefit TransTexas this season. Join us in learning from their work on this website https://www.transtexas.org, and in donating if you can.
TENT is an organization dedicated to furthering gender diverse equality in Texas. We work to accomplish this through education and networking in both public and private forums. Through our efforts we strive to halt discrimination through social, legislative, and corporate education.
Happy Pride! Love, the Torch!
