About 800 members of the LGBT community donned their Phillies garb Monday night for the eighth-annual Gay Community Night at the Phillies. Before the game, city director of LGBT affairs Gloria Casarez took the pitcher’s mound and threw out the ceremonial first pitch, while the Philadelphia Voices of Pride, led by artistic director Dean Rishel, sang the National Anthem. Organizer Larry Felzer said that despite the rainy evening and the Phils’ loss, the community enjoyed it and saw full support from the Phillies. “I’ve called in the past to say that I don’t think the Gay Community Night was featured enough on the scoreboards. This year, I’m certainly not going to call to say it was featured too much, but they did a great job of getting it up on the board throughout the entire game.” Scott Drake
