One Team Shop, the NFLPA's merchandising outlet, released its “LGBT Pride Vintage T-Shirts” in celebration of pride month.

The players association is partnering with Athlete Ally, a nonprofit organization that fights homophobia in sports and will contribute all of the net profits to the group.

Per a release from the NFLPA:

“Athlete Ally is a proud partner in this effort as the NFLPA makes clear to all of its players that the union supports and welcomes them, regardless of sexual orientation, and to all LGBT fans that they are respected,” said Hudson Taylor, the founder of Athlete Ally.

Available players included Brendon Ayanbadejo, Scott Fujita, Terrell Suggs, Chris Kluwe and a few others.

“I'm extremely proud to be part of this collaboration to raise awareness both of Pride Month and the issue of tolerance and respect within the NFL itself,” Kluwe said per the release. “Also, I'm pretty stoked that people can buy something with my number on it,” he added.
