GLAAD and American Apparel have partnered to release a new t-shirt for LGBT pride month, now available online and in stores across the nation. 15% of the sales on the new shirts with the word "OUT!" printed on the front will go to GLAAD to help us continue to rewrite the script for equality. We partnered with American Apparel for LGBT Pride in 2012 and 2013, creating t-shirts that voice support for equality.
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Darren Young joined GLAAD at L.A. Pride March on June 8, where he walked with the GLAAD staff and nearly 100 GLAAD supporters alongside a Camaro convertible provided by Chevrolet. Young came out as the first openly gay WWE superstar in August 2013. He will once again join GLAAD at the 44th annual LGBT Pride March in New York City on June 29.
"Pride is not only about celebrating all that LGBT people and families have achieved but also a time when we should all reflect on the next steps to create a world where everyone can live a life they love," said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "GLAAD is proud to march with Darren this year, who has sent a powerful and affirming message to countless LGBT youth and millions of WWE fans."
