Just in from GLSEN:
Today, the NBA announced a partnership with Teespring, a leading on-demand commerce platform, and GLSEN on a 2-week campaign supporting LGBT Pride month. As part of this, Teespring will offer PRIDE shirts featuring all 30 NBA teams with officially licensed logos. Each will have a black background with the team logo emblazoned in rainbow. All of the proceeds for the shirts, which will be available exclusively online at Teespring, will benefit GLSEN.
GLSEN’s Executive Director, Dr. Eliza Byard, said, “Support from professional sports for LGBT people has been one of the biggest cultural developments of the past five years, and the NBA has consistently led the way. Thank you, NBA and Teespring, for this generous support, and for standing with your LGBT fans, LGBT youth, and GLSEN with these Pride-themed shirts. For LGBT fans and players alike, visibility and inclusion in the family of sports remains a key goal. The entire GLSEN family is proud of our longstanding partnership with the NBA, and excited about all of the work we are doing together to make K-12 physical education and athletics – and all of K-12 education – more inclusive and welcoming of LGBT students.”
