Figure apropos I share this. Much like Raiders' Carl Nassib, hopefully one day this won't matter - but representation is important.

Good Edmonton kid, and I can imagine the weight taken off his shoulders was huge.

And remember, no one comes out for you, they come out for themselves.

This is amazing. Good on him!

But he (Belanger)'s as soft as room temp. margarine.

Good for him!

He'd be an Oilers prospect too if Matty had a say.


Bob Stauffer @Bob_Stauffer
Oilers confirm they are keeping their 3rd pick this year.
Calgary will get a 3rd rounder for the Neal trade in 2021.
Wouldn't surprise me if Edmonton targets a D in 3rd round

How about big D Luke Prokop from Calgary Hitmen. His dad Al runs Blackhawk Golf Club.

Slowly moving toward the day where there is no risk or courage involved in people being who they are, they can go where their ambition and skill takes them without fear, and people like Prokop can just be known as hockey players, for example, without added identifiers. Admittedly earlier in life I largely ignored this issue and have evolved my own worldview relatively recently.

Most of us wear our self identity as freely and naturally as our own skins. I cant pretend to know what it's like to not be able to do that, not to have that freedom. Hope the young man feels great.

I mean I really liked how the Hitmen's Twitter team shut down the first person that tried to talk about whether this will help him better at hockey.

"When people are able to be themselves and feel accepted, every aspect of life improves. So yes, it does help on the ice."
