“Every winner knows victory doesn’t happen alone,” says the narrator in a new video from Nike released for Pride Month. “But none of us can truly win until the rules are the same for everyone.”
The new clip features athletes and allies of the LGBTQ community who support equality for all athletes including WNBA’s Brittany Griner, Sue Bird, Jewell Lloyd and Jordin Canada; skaters Fernando Bramsmark, Eric Koston, and Elissa Steamer; runners Kerron Clement, Caster Semenya, Scout Bassett and Chris Mosier; and soccer player Mark McKenzie.
It doesn’t matter what you play. Nobody wins alone.
Whether it’s as a team, within our community, or anyone who celebrates our victory as their own — progress only comes if we get there together.
Through decades of game-changing dedication from LGBTQIA+ athletes, those who work to make sport a more inclusive space for all, and the expression of icons like designer Gilbert Baker, the playing field becomes more level every day.
But as far as we’ve come, the game won’t be equal until we all win.
