The Halifax Mussels is the only LGBTQ+ hockey league east of Montreal. We create a safe space for EVERYONE at any skill level from first time on skates and up to play the game they have likely been too intimidated to try because of the historic culture of masculinity in the sport. We are changing that.
We have been approaching LGBTQ owned and supportive businesses in HRM looking for small sponsorship support and have had absolutely no interest, response or uptake.
Hockey is expensive. Now that we have created a safe space for our community to enjoy this sport, our only barrier is financial. We need financial support to grow our league and make it accessable to more members of our community. Similar leagues in other cities have significant corporate sponsorship.
I'd like to challenge our community to step up and support this first for Halifax. We need both in-kind and financial support. Please, if you are a business owner, consider supporting this unique, worthwhile endeavor in our community. If you are an individual and would like to support us, please visit our Square store and make a donation.
Thank you for reading.
