In a powerful display of support for the LGBTQ community, the Chicago Blackhawks have unveiled a pride-colored Zamboni just one day after NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's announcement regarding the discontinuation of specialized warmup jerseys.

Dubbed the "Glamboni," the vibrant vehicle symbolizes the team's commitment to inclusivity.

Taking their support further, the Blackhawks took to Twitter to announce their participation in the upcoming Pride Parade alongside Chicago Gay Hockey.

This collaborative gesture highlights the organization's dedication to fostering an environment of acceptance and equality.

While Bettman stated that the decision to retire the warmup jerseys stemmed from concerns over distraction, NHL clubs remain unafraid to showcase their backing for the LGBTQ community.

It is important to note that Pride nights will still be celebrated throughout the league, with pride jerseys available for purchase.

Amidst these changes, the Chicago Blackhawks' demonstration of solidarity serves as a reminder that their commitment to supporting marginalized communities remains unwavering.
