Gritty is crazy for hockey, but he loves love.
The Philadelphia Flyers mascot marched alongside other team members down in the 31st annual Philly Pride Parade on Sunday.
Gritty and the Flyers joined the You Can Play Project, which advocates for ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes without regard to sexual orientation and/or gender identity, in a Flyers truck covered in rainbow tissue paper. Gritty spiritedly walked the 1.5-mile route, exciting and inspiring the thousands in attendance by carrying and waving a rainbow flag, a symbol of the LGBTQ community.
Gritty's march came a day after Braden Holtby participated in the Capital Pride Parade for the third straight year.
