U.S. Soccer to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month with awesome rainbow number jerseys

U.S. Soccer has partnered with You Can Play Project in recognition of LGBTQ Pride Month, and as a result will be wearing some awesome jerseys with rainbow-colored numbers. These will be worn during June friendlies, with the U.S. men's national team taking on Venezuela on June 3 and the women's national team going to Sweden on June 8 and Norway three days later. Take a look:

Those are awesome. We've seen U.S. Soccer step up before to support the LGBTQ community. Props to them for again recognizing an important effort for equality and doing what it can to raise awareness.
