The NFL unveiled an updated version of its pride shield logo, which now includes the colors of the trans flag and the intersectional queer black and brown community.
America’s largest sports league posted graphics across social media on Wednesday, where they went into detail on what their new flag represents.

“We are proud to support and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community every day, not just in June. Happy pride month to our fans, players, staff, and the LGBTQ+ community,” the first slide says.
“Together, the colors of the NFL pride shield represent the heart and soul of the LGBTQ+ community. In order to make our shield more inclusive, we added light blue, pink, and white to reflect the colors of the transgender flag along with black and brown stripes to include marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color.
“The NFL’s #PRIDE365 efforts over the past year include making charitable donations to organizations including the Trevor Project, Celebrating Spirit with GLAAD, promoting national coming out day across the league, inclusive marketing efforts with our ‘Football is Gay’ campaign, a night of pride at SBLVI, allyship efforts with the covenant house LA, a NGFFL (National Gay Flag Football League) draft pick and so much more.
The Trevor Project has been accused of grooming kids into transitioning after a mother posed as a teen and was encouraged into accepting trans ideology.
Additionally, LGBTQ group GLAAD had a commercial aired by Disney that featured a family with “a transgender” child.
