We here at MyGayGetaway.com are indeed sports fans and we think this awesome video of this Swedish team donning rainbow jerseys and dancing to YMCA in a post-game celebration in support of LGBTI rights is amazing - as was the audience!

Örebro Hockey goalie Julius Hudacek is known for his post-game performances and has even earned himself the Twitter hastag #HudaShow.

After beating the Frölunda Indians 4-2 in a 'pride match,' Hudacek led his teammates and the entire audience in a dance to the 1978 Village People gay anthem YMCA.

Before the game, Örebro held a lecture on LGBTI people in sports and encouraged fans to wear rainbow pins and buy limited-edition pride scarves and jerseys.

'Pride game is a way for us to show social responsibility and take a clear stand for the equal value. Pride game is more than just a game, more than just a stunt,' a statement on the team's website reads.

Ice hockey team Kiruna IF wore rainbow jerseys for the entire 2014-2015 season in a bid to become the first Swedish sports team to receive gay-friendly certification.
