LeBron James and Maverick Carter‘s UNINTERRUPTED brand has reprised its collaboration with Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird for Pride Month, introducing a selection of custom hoodies for the occasion. 

UNINTERRUPTED’s pieces aim to highlight the LGBTQIA+ community and bring attention to the protection of queer youth, as well as offering support to those who are disproportionately attacked and experience injustices. The brand is also honoring Nigel Shelby, the 15-year-old boy who died by suicide following his experiences with homophobic abuse.

The capsule is produced in collaboration with Athletes 4 Impact, a sports-based non-profit organization that advocates for change and educates people in acceptance. UNINTERRUPTED’s “Love Is Uninterrupted” custom Nike hoodie is available in “Heather Gray,” “Vegas Gold” and “Baby Blue,” and features a statement on the front which reads out what “Love Is,” noting compassion, freedom, boldness and more.

On the rear, the brand has added a Pride flag, while the sleeves are finished with graphics that range from branding to a note remembering Nigel Shelby. Take a look at the hoodies in the gallery above, and pick up one for yourself on UNINTERRUPTED’s website on June 28 for $125 USD. 20 percent of any purchase made on the brand’s website will be donated to LGBTQIA+ foundations dedicated to making social change and bringing communities together.
