The Washington Capitals changed up their logo for this month.

In honor of Pride Month, the Washington Capitals showed their support for the LGBTQ+ community by tweeting out a new pic they’re using as their profile pic on their social media channels.

They took the iconic Capitals logo and changed up the L that makes the shape of a hockey stick by putting pride tape on the blade of it, making it a sick logo and something we would buy if they put this on a T-shirt!

The Caps also took their “Rock the Red” slogan and changed it to the hashtag #RockTheRainbow for the occasion.

But as we all know about this great team is they do more than just share a pic showing their support on social media. The Caps are also active in the community and host a variety of initiatives and causes.

Their company, Monumental Sports and Entertainment recently announced an MSE Foundation auction that benefits the LGBTQ+ nonprofit SMYAL that will launch on Thursday June 18.  SMYAL stands for Supporting and Mentoring Youth Advocates and Leaders and is a nonprofit that works to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth in the Washington metropolitan area.

The auction will take place from June 18th through next Friday June 26th ending at 3 p.m. It’ll feature autographed  player-used sticks wrapped in rainbow-colored “Pride Tape” as well as player autographed, pride-themed T-shirts, jerseys, pucks, and basketballs from the Caps, Wizards, and Mystics. You can bid for these cool items on HandBid.com

The Caps won’t be just doing an auction. On Tuesday they changed the external video boards with a “LOVE WINS” banner and graphics featuring the Caps, Wizards and Mystics.

The Caps also tweeted out a video highlighting Braden Holtby participating in the Pride Parade last summer as well as this season’s Pride Night at Capital One Arena.

Seeing the Caps continue to give back to the community, especially the LGBTQ+ community, shows the team’s commitment to excellence off the ice as well as on it.

Like we mentioned earlier, what the Caps did with their logo for the month of June is dope and we’d love to have it on a T-shirt. Here’s hoping the team uses this logo for future Pride Nights when we can all go to games again.
