LOS ANGELES — SPEEDO USA, a division of PVH Corp. (NYSE: PVH), today announced its first-ever, limited-edition Pride Collection in celebration of Pride Month and in support of LGBTQ rights, available now for pre-order exclusively on SpeedoUSA.com.

The collection is comprised of nine “rainbow-kissed” pieces, including goggles, suiting, caps and on-deck apparel featuring a multicolored Speedo logo, with some also including the phrase “No Matter Which Lane You Swim.” Pride Collection styles range from $14.99 to $69.

“Speedo USA fosters an inclusive environment in all areas of its business,” said Speedo USA President John Graham. “We are proud to bring that same spirit to our apparel offerings this month and connect athletes of all orientations with LGBTQ swim communities as we support Pride in June and beyond.”

In addition to launching this exclusive collection on SpeedoUSA.com, Speedo USA has created a landing page for consumers to find LGBTQ U.S. Masters Swimmers clubs and others clubs around the country, all of which will receive Pride Collection apparel (here). Speedo USA is a proud sponsor of LA Pride 2018, which will be held on June 10, and will also participate in the NYC Pride March on June 24 through the sponsorship of its parent company, PVH.

We should be supporting everyone. Too many kids taking their lives.

In what specifically?

Had a coach who is one of my favorite people make some comment like “if that were my kid…” talking about a male wearing a pink speedo. Hurt to hear.

Swimmers definitely toe the line as far as straight kids doing gay things. We are wearing almost nothing and are very close physically day in and day out. What do you expect? I hope we can all have compassion and understanding for all people considering our sport’s culture and where we come from.

“doing gay things” and describing it with stereotypes like “being very close physically and wearing almost nothing” also hurts to hear… Beautiful love speech but you would want to revisit and reevaluate most of your concepts.
