They're fans, too

I read with great interest and satisfaction Rob Biertempfel's Sports story “MLB, Pirates support LGBT youth” (Oct. 18 and TribLIVE.com). Congratulations on this reporting.

Yes, gay Pittsburghers love baseball, have suffered and been loyal fans for the last 21 years, rooting for the Pirates.

Yes, gay Pittsburghers buy Pirates merchandise, cheer amongst the sellout crowds at PNC Park and stand up and sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch.

Yes, gay Pittsburghers love to get autographs, and call sports talk shows and read the box scores daily.

I think you get my point!

Purple might be the color of Spirit Day, but my colors are black and gold.
