The brand has teamed up with three trailblazers for the campaign to discuss their journey as an LGBT+ person in their field of sport.
This includes runner and former cheerleader Lilly, basketball player and roller skater Aysha and personal trainer Cortni.
Lilly is a trans woman who faced backlash from her peers and was publicly outed online, but now uses her story to inspire other LGBT+ people to embrace who they are.
As part of the campaign she talks about finding her fitness community after being outed, saying: “My track teammates and track members from other schools told me I should still compete and feel welcome within the sport.
“That really was a turning point in which I felt so happy to be a part of the team.”
Aysha, who runs popular Instagram account @rollersk8queen, discusses what Pride means to her, saying: “Pride is wearing a dress while skating. Pride is wearing eyelashes during a basketball game. Pride is being unapologetic about who you are. Pride is also supporting and inspiring others to be true to themselves.”
While Cortni talks taking up space in sport, saying: “If you find yourself in a space where you feel unwelcome, leave. There are more places that will love you for you than won’t. Find your people. You have as much right to take up space as anybody else.”
