The Seattle Sounders started celebrating Pride Week last season. Rainbow flags filled the stadium, rainbow scarves were everywhere and many ECS two-poles were painted on rainbow canvases. But perhaps the single most powerful symbol was the rainbow wrapped around Brad Evans’ arm.

In this interview with SoundersFC.com, Evans explains how enthusiastic he was to participate in Pride Week last year and how surprised he was that it turned out to be somewhat controversial. Evans also speaks about the importance of coming together as a community and supporting things like this. It’s an interview that’s definitely worth watching.
