This information has been confirmed by a Chris Voth, a player of this team and a first openly gay athlete from Canada.

I think it is amazing that our team will be walking in the Pride parade here in Finland and we are hoping that this will encourage other people and teams to do the same. There is a lot of room for growth throughout the world, but also here in Finland and this act of the club is pretty massive,” says Voth.

At the end of last year, he gave a huge interview for WorldofVolley, talking about difficulties that he had as a gay volleyball player.
