DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Detroit Pistons are kicking off Pride Week on Monday with a series of virtual events that run from Monday through Thursday and are open for registration now.

It will begin with a virtual workout hosted by Chris Mosier on Monday at 6 p.m. Dosier, a Northern Michigan grad, was the first transgender athlete to compete for the U.S. in international competition.

Tuesday is an interactive discussion, Wednesday will be an Athletes for Equality Panel and Thursday is a virtual dance class.

“Through the Pistons Pride Week events and discussions, we look to recognize and advocate for inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Erika Swilley, Detroit Pistons senior director of community relations. “We stand behind our commitment to equality and we are grateful to our many partners for joining in this important dialogue.”
