Last week “Adidas”, the company is a manufacturer of sportswear, which is known for its consistent support for the LGBT community, has made a sponsorship agreement in place that guarantees the impossibility of breach of contract due to coming out.
Robin John Stalker made a special statement on this matter (he is a president of the “Adidas”). New item Treaty reads: “Adidas” recognizes the leading philosophy of equality in their activities, and ensures that the agreement will not be terminated or otherwise altered in the case where the athlete will make coming out as a representative of the LGBT community”.
“Adidas” has long worked with LGBT athletes. So, in recent years the company has entered into a sponsorship agreement with such open LGBT people in sports like Brittney Griner, Abby Wambach and Michael Sam. In early 2014 openly gay Tom Daley has become the face of advertising “Adidas” for teenagers.
