We all know that the buzz about support among leagues, teams and players for the LGBT community grew when Jason Collins came out back in April. Since then, it’s been a pretty big deal and even in the places outside of the four major sports, there has been a support like none that we’ve seen before.
Athlete Ally tweeted this out yesterday, showing that the NFLPA is in support and actually will be designing shirts in that support. There’s a vote for which design should be chosen for mass production. I think B looks the best.
But the bigger thing here is that we are now seeing the evolution of how acceptance is starting to take over. It’s still a touchy subject but at least it’s not swept under the rug. This is a small step in the right direction, so it’s a good move. I’d like to see what else is in store for the future.
