The t-shirt collection, available now, is in partnership with Teespring. All proceeds will go to GLSEN.

GLSEN executive director Eliza Byard told Outsports:
“Professional sports showing up for LGBT people is one of the biggest cultural developments of the last decade, and really the last five years.
“The NBA has been showing up for LGBT youth and for GLSEN for a number of years. Having this be a league-wide initiative, knowing any LGBT fan in the country can choose to celebrate their team and themselves with one of those shirts, that’s a whole new thing.”
Teespring’s Morrie Eisenberg added “We’re thrilled to work with the NBA and GLSEN to bring life this collection to life and help fans around the country celebrate PRIDE month in a unique and creative way.”
While there has been much positive feedback…
