Much like the trend that brought Will & Grace and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to popular culture in the late 1990s, it seems that LGBT-themed clothing has become all the rage in the sports world. Just Tuesday, we brought you the story of Nike’s LGBT rainbow sneakers.
June represents LGBT pride month, and to celebrate, the NFL Players Association has released a line of seven faux-vintage, LGBT-themed T-shirts. What’s more is the shirts feature actual NFL players lending their names and numbers. Chris Kluwe, Brendan Ayanbadejo, Chris Gocong, Scott Fujita, Terrell Suggs, Steve Gleason and Donte Stallworth are the players featured, each of whom have spoken out for gay rights in the past.
To top it all off, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each shirt go to Athlete Ally, “a leading nonprofit resource dedicated to teaching all individuals involved in sports to respect every community member, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression,” according to the NFLPA’s website.
So, if you have $25 to spare and a penchant for civil rights, you can pick up your T-shirt by clicking here. Check out a picture of Kluwe’s shirt below.
