UNINTERRUPTED Collaborates With Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird on Pride Month Collection

Honoring Nigel Shelby, an Alabama teen who endured homophobic bullying and ultimately took his own life.

UNINTERRUPTED, the athlete empowerment brand founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, has teamed up with power couple Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird on a collection of hoodies celebrating Pride Month.

Created in collaboration with Athletes for Impact, a non-profit encouraging athlete activism, the range of Nike-branded hoodies arrive in heather gray, beige and blue. All colorways are printed with graphics including the rainbow Pride flag, a lambda symbol (an emblem long associated with the gay liberation movement) and text reading, “Love is compassion / Love is bold / Love is unique / Love is loud / Love is freedom / Love is uninterrupted.”

The left sleeve of each hoodie also bears a note honoring Nigel Shelby, a 15-year-old who died by suicide in April after enduring homophobic bullying by his classmates at Huntsville High School in Alabama.

The Megan Rapinoe x Sue Bird x UNINTERRUPTED Pride hoodies retail for $125 USD and release June 28 at the UNINTERRUPTED website. 20 percent of proceeds will be donated to LGBTQ+ organizations, the names of which haven’t yet been disclosed.
