Pride Nights are a relatively new phenomenon for top-tier football, as Washington (then the Football Team, now the Commanders) was the first to host one during a game, and that was last year.
Most teams, along with the league itself, run off-the-field initiatives in the LGBTQ+ space, but game nights as such are rare since LGBT Pride Month falls outside of the NFL season.
At the time of this writing, no NFL teams had announced their theme nights yet, only the 2022 regular season schedule.

Like the NFL, the NBA doesn’t tend to focus on June, because the regular season is over and the focus is on the Finals. But individual teams host LGBT Pride Nights on an occasional basis; for example, the Chicago Bulls offered a fabulous event this year.
Some teams, like the Los Angeles Lakers, host their Pride Nights in October, which is LGBTQ+ History Month, while in April of last year the Phoenix Suns hosted the first in-person Pride Night since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. 19.
But there is no set schedule for Pride Nights in the NBA, so keep an eye on your team’s social media.
