“When the burden of hiding who I was had been lifted, my navigation in the world of sports became a much lighter and happier place. I accepted the work, the challenges, the ebbs and flows that every athlete faces with a confidence and ownership within that I had never known. It was then that I realized that if fans, fellow athletes, youth, etc. didn’t see high achieving athletes who were celebrated for their accomplishments and their own authenticity, then the wide world of sports couldn’t fully have the cohesive, impactful presence in people’s lives that I know it can.” – Josh Dixon, former Team USA gymnast.

UA advocates for equality, inclusion and opportunity for all athletes. That’s why we’ve partnered with Athlete Ally, a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating homophobia and transphobia in sports. Our UA Pride Collection supports their efforts to create curriculum designed to foster an inclusive and empowering environment for all athletes. #WEWILL
