United's Perspective on Pride - Part 1

By New Mexico United Staff, 05/17/19, 5:00PM MDT


As the team gears up for Pride on the Pitch,  we sat down with members of the team to find out what Unity means to them.

About Pride on the Pitch:

Buy your tickets  for the June 5th match, which could be another sell out event. The first 5,000 fans through the gates will receive a limited-edition rainbow themed New Mexico United flag. Plus, a performance by the New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus’ outreach ensemble, the NM QTones and limited-edition rainbow themed merchandise!

Troy Lesesne, Head Coach and Technical Director

“Love is the basis of why we exist and love will never allow itself to recognize prejudice."

Austin Yearwood, Defender

“This club represents the coming together of all New Mexicans. We stand united in the face of hate.”

Cody Mizell, Goalkeeper

“I love that our game brings all communities together and I’m proud to be part of an organization that supports all people, period.”

Juan Pablo Guzman, Midfielder

“Every human heart longs to be loved and accepted and celebrated! A community that is united around those values has no ceiling on what they can accomplish!”

Chris Wehan, Midfielder

“As a community, we share a love for this beautiful game and continue to show the nation the pride and support New Mexico has to offer. Imagine what’s possible when we join arms as a community beyond the field, regardless of our differences.”
