Reggie Bullock Wants NBA Jerseys To Incorporate Support For LGBTQ Rights
Detroit Pistons player Reggie Bullock has a new idea for the NBA — rainbow jerseys.
Yesterday afternoon (April 22nd), he tweeted about a dream he had.
Playing with rainbow colored jerseys is nothing new. In soccer, it’s been a thing for years.
The National Basketball Association has also been making strides to become more inclusive. Last year, they teamed up with the advocacy group National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). The partnership aims to help LGBTQ businesses work with the sports league.
They also have official t-shirts with rainbow team logos. Earlier this year, the Toronto Raptors hosted the first You Can Play game in the NBA, a night for LGBTQ fans.
If anyone can get it done, it’s you
Bullock is no stranger to supporting LGBTQ rights.
His trans sister, Mia Henderson, was killed in 2014. To remember her, he got ‘LGBTQ’ tattooed on his calf next to her name.
