With all that Black Friday mishegas, and right-wingers railing against Kinky Boots, we were about to head into the holiday season with a lump of coal in our hearts. Fortunately, the Chicago Gay Hockey Association is has thrust the Christmas spirit into us with a too-adorable-for-words cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas.”
The group says in a statement on their YouTube page:
We want you to put aside your differences. And to spend some time getting closer to your family and friends. If you take a step back and look, you may surprise yourself with how much you have in common with people. The person next to you on the train could become your best friend. After all, aren’t we all just looking for love? Don’t forget to laugh a little. And sing a little. Happy Holidays y’all!
Below, the CGHA also contributed a video to the You Can Play campaign, which seeks to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment in organized sports.
