In a video celebrating Pride Month, the National Football League (NFL) declares that football is all things LGBTQ.
On Monday, the NFL posted a video to its official Twitter page proclaiming in capital letters that “FOOTBALL IS,” among other things:
If you love this game, you are welcome here. Football is for all. Football is for everyone.— NFL (@NFL) June 28, 2021
The NFL stands by the LGBTQ+ community today and every day.

“If you love this game, you are welcome here. Football is for all. Football is for everyone. The NFL stands by the LGBTQ+ community today and every day,” the tweet introducing the video says, before inviting readers to visit the website of a charity supported by the league’s first openly-gay active player, Carl Nassib.
Last week, Nassib, a defensive end for the Los Angeles Raiders, announced he is gay.
