YONKERS – Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway, a long-time supporter of the LGBTQ+ community with MGM Resorts being the first company in the gaming and hospitality industry to offer same-sex health benefits to employees back in 2004, is lighting their signature porte-cochere in rainbow colors each night and Pride Flags are flying high both at the casino’s VIP/Valet entrance and on the infield at Yonkers Raceway, which recently started welcoming fans back to the track as pandemic restrictions ease. 

Empire City Casino employees joined the celebration as well with Pride rainbow flag pins and rainbow cake in a show of support. 

   Company officials say celebrating Pride is one way for Empire City Casino to show its commitment to taking strong and principled stands on issues of equality, while recognizing its LGBTQ+ employees and the many allies who champion a more inclusive and welcoming society.   

MGM Resorts has also been named by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the nation’s “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” with a perfect score of 100 for nearly 10 years in a row.
