Team LGBTQ+ Weren’t Just Out And Proud, They Also Made History At The Winter Olympics

The US and Canadian Olympic hockey rivalry is one that has continued for decades, with each team trading off the gold and silver medals each time. This year, the US failed to defend their gold from 2018, losing to Canada 3-2.

Still, both teams had their share of queer teammates with Erin Ambrose, Emily Clark, Melodie Daoust, Brianne Jenner, Jamie Lee Rattray, Jill Saulnier, and Micah Zandee-Hart as the gold-winning out Canadian athletes. Alex Carpenter was the sole out American on their hockey team.

In the bronze medal match, Finland’s lone queer player, Ronja Savolainen, helped them win the third place medal.
