Shoe brand joins global celebration of love on 'PrideMonth

Adidas joins the global celebration of Pride presenting the newest iteration of Love Unites—a variety of programming that celebrates the proud and unapologetic. Debuting the first week of June, the campaign champions love’s power to change lives. Love Unites marks a global call for people to come together in recognition of the movement’s extraordinary advances since the NYC Stonewall Riots, and its unwavering mission towards growth and equality. “We believe through sport, we have the power to change lives,” said Emmy Negrin, adidas Director of Diversity & Inclusion. “Real, positive change is possible when you harness the influence of sport. It’s on all of us to help create a world in which everyone feels safe and can show up as their authentic, unapologetic selves. We see you and we celebrate you, during Pride month and every single day all year long.” Contributing to the resilient LGBTQ+ movement, adidas will support the The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for youth of the community. The brand will contribute a financial donation to assist the organization’s agenda and incite wider awareness of its cause. For more information on The Trevor Project please visit www.thetrevorproject.org. To help bring the campaign to life, adidas enlists pop artist Ace Troy, drag performer Flawless Shade, Father of Kiki House of Flora Brandon Harrison, musician The Last Artful, Dodgr, pro soccer player Taylor Smith and DJ Venus X to share their stories and experiences, and to reveal what Love Unites means to them through an intimate short-film. Through its ongoing partnership with the Brooklyn Museum, adidas supports a special iteration of First Saturdays fully dedicated to Pride.  The exhibition entitled Nobody Promised You Tomorrow, features twenty-two LGBTQ+ artists who pay tribute to the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. Through an evening of music performances, film, live art installments, and more, the showcase will pay reverence by uplifting the community and fostering courageous dialogue and connection through the featured work on view.  Full programming for the Brooklyn Museum is available at www.brooklynmuseum.org. Paying homage to a true champion of the LGBTQ+ community, the brand with the three stripes will also look to Keith Haring for inspiration during June, celebrating his lasting legacy and partnering with the foundation in his name. Haring’s instantly recognizable work can be found on some of the brand’s most iconic footwear silhouettes—the Rivalry Hi, Nizza Hi, and Stan Smith. The Pride pack is now available via adidas stores nationwide, adidas.com and select retailers......»»

Billed as Olympic Day and Lakad Para Atleta 2019, the event witnessed for the first time ever, a unity walk of abled body athletes walking side by side with para athletes to give life to the event theme, “Unity and Transformation Through Sports.” The event was highlighted by a torch relay that featured five pairs of Olympians and Paralympians traversing the 500-meter oval, symbolizing inclusiveness and equality for all. The torch relay culminated in a cauldron lighting ceremony followed by the Lakad Para Atleta Legacy Walk participated in by athletes and non-athletes, including a huge group from Citi Philippines as key supporter of PPC and the Paralympic movement. After the walk, the Philippine Olympians Association turned over seedlings to the University of the Philippines to express their advocacy that sports can be used for the betterment of the environment.

PBA: Pogoy shoots way to PoW citation In Commissioner’s Cup

Terrence Jones is not just the sole reason for TnT Katropa lording it over in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Roger Pogoy has also stepped up to the plate and been delivering huge numbers for the Katropa, who have consistently managed to stay on top of the mid-season conference standings. The tournament so far has seen Pogoy break his career-best not just once but twice, the last of which came in the team’s 104-96 beating of Barangay Ginebra. Pogoy’s hot-shooting had him emerging as the unanimous choice as PBA Press Corps-Cignal Player of the Week for the period June 10-16. The 27-year-old native of Minglanilla, Cebu beat out TnT teammates Don Trollano and Troy Rosario, Sean Anthony of NorthPort, Alex Mallari of Phoenix, Magnolia’s Ian Sangalang, the San Miguel trio of Marcio Lassiter, Alex Cabagnot, and June Mar Fajardo, and the Ginebra duo of Scottie Thompson and Greg Slaughter for the weekly honor. Pogoy was exceptionally hot against the Katropa’s big win over the Kings, as he torched them for 38 big points, a new career high for the Gilas Pilipinas gunner. The former Rookie of the Year capped off his heroics by firing a total of 10 three pointers. The feat made Pogoy as only the fourth player in league history to sink 10 three pointers, joining an elite company that included Allan Caidic, Kenneth Duremdes, and Marcio Lassiter......»»
