Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames of the NHL created a video in support of the You Can Play Project. Based in Calgary, Alberta, the Flames are a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League. Their colors are red, gold, black, and white. The Flames have won two President's Trophies and one Stanley Cup.

In their video the Flames support equality in sports by saying "We believe that athletes should be judged by their character, work ethic, and talent. Not their sexual orientation, or gender identity." "We are absolutely commited to creating a culture of respect. We pledge to support LGBTQ athletes and our LGBTQ fans."
