Are you a fan of professional basketball? Also a fan of LGBT equality? Wear your love of sports and essential human rights on your sleeve (or chest, more accurately), with a T-shirt emblazoned with your favorite NBA team's logo cast in the rainbow colors of Pride.
Launched on June 7 to honor Pride Month, the shirts are exclusively available through Teespring and were officially sanctioned by the National Basketball Association—the first time a men's pro sports league has ever given the greenlight for apparel that supports LGBT pride.
All 30 teams are represented in the clothing line, and—super big bonus—all proceeds go to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, which partnered with the NBA to introduce the shirts. GLSEN, a national policy group, focuses on inclusion and respect outreach at K-12 schools around the country.
If basketball's not your thing, you can also purchase LGBT pride accessories released by select Major League Baseball and National Hockey League teams from apparel company '47 (47brand.com).
As Eliza Byard told Outsports: "Professional sports showing up for LGBT people is one of the biggest cultural developments of the last decade." That's something to cheer about.
