Nike Pride T-Shirt to Benefit Athlete Ally
I am proud to announce that starting June 7th the 2012 Nike Pride Tee Shirt will go on sale to support Athlete Ally. Being sold at the Nike Portland and Nike Factory Store, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the work of Athlete Ally. With the proceeds from this shirt, we will bring our message of respect and inclusion into the locker rooms that need it most and help more allies speak out against homophobia and transphobia in athletics.
Nike continues to be a pioneer for making sport a safe space for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender athletes. In the last year alone, Nike LGBT and Friends group sponsored several events to promote allyship and continue the dialogue integral to making sport everything we know it can be.
I want to thank Nike for their continued leadership in this space and for their confidence in and support of Athlete Ally.
