AA partners with NFLPA for Pride
One Team Shop today announced the launch of its One Team Pride Shirts. The month of June is LGBT pride month, and the perfect to time to raise awareness for an important cause - equality.
"Athlete Ally is a proud partner in this effort as the NFLPA makes clear to all of its players that the union supports and welcomes them, regardless of sexual orientation, and to all LGBT fans that they are respected," said Hudson Taylor, Founder and Executive Director of Athlete Ally.
"I am extremely proud to be a part of this collaboration between Athlete Ally and the NFLPA's One Team Shop to raise awareness both of Pride month and the issue of tolerance and respect within the NFL itself," said Chris Kluwe, punter for the Oakland Raiders. "As players, we are role models to a wide variety of people, and this is a great way to send a message of empathy to those who love and watch the game. Also, I'm pretty stoked that people can buy something with my number on it."
"June is a special month for the LGBT community,” said Super Bowl Champion Brendon Ayanbadejo. I am extremely excited that the NFLPA Is adding its name to the list of ever growing allies. The simple fact that football players believe in equality for every human being Is going to make an impact on a lot of peoples lives."
