Dre BaroneI am a hockey referee, spending the past 4 seasons in the ECHL. I was the first openly gay male in professional hockey and am an advocate for change. Having lived and travelled all over the US and Canada for most of the 20s, I now live in my hometown of Montreal with my boyfriend. Through my experiences both on and off the ice, I value authenticity and love above all. I believe we can educate and change minds by being kind and listening to one another without shame or judgement. That is what real long lasting change looks like - and don’t forget to have a little fun along the way. This is too important to take seriously.

I’m never short a laugh!
