Pride Month & Skating - June 2020

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

There are a number of live streamed video chats now available on Javier Raya's Skate Proud YouTube Channel: Up next is one scheduled for tomorrow with Jackie Wong (RockerSkating). I expect more will be added throughout this month.
