    “We celebrate the LGBTQ+ community during #PrideMonth and beyond.” the
    tweet read along with a Happy Pride Month banner to go with a NASCAR
    logo fronted by a rainbow flag.

    Known for its thunderous races and die-hard fans, NASCAR is an unexpected ally of the LGBTQ+ community. Surprisingly, they have been supporting the LGBTQ+ community dating back to at least 2020. The stock-car racing organization even has Pride merch that include images of rainbowed checkered flags and race cars.

    Perhaps the most striking piece in this collection are the tees emblazoned with the word “YAAASCAR.” The design is more than just a clever play on NASCAR’s name, it’s a direct nod to “YAAAS,” a word that has roots in queer culture.

    NASCAR president Steve Phelps elaborating on that decision as well as its efforts at becoming more welcoming to all with Fox Sports last June.

    “Generally, we as a sport haven’t been as welcoming and inclusive to the LGBTQ community, and we want to be,” Phelps said.

    We want our sport to be as welcoming and inclusive as it can be. That’s what race fans, our existing fans primarily, not all of them, but they want to share this sport with others. They do.

    Whether it’s someone’s sexual orientation or the color of their skin or whatever that might be, it’s immaterial. It’s a love for racing that they want to celebrate with each other. That’s really something we’re working really hard at.”

    Right Wing Bigots have meltdown.
