In an effort to help create a safe space for LGBTQIA+ youth, two soccer support groups—Los Verdes and The Plastics—are collaborating on limited-edition merch.
Austin FC support group Los Verdes and inclusive women and queer Major League Soccer support group The Plastics have designed a summer scarf that combines their love of soccer, Tejano culture and inclusivity.
The scarf features each group's logo and the phrase "Y'all means all" over stripes that were inspired by Daniel Quasar's Progress Pride flag. All proceeds from the merch will be donated to Out Youth, an organization that provides a safe space and resources to LGBTQ youth and their families.
According to Los Verdes' website, the new scarf "represents the solidarity and exchange between communities: LGBTQ+, womxn, non-binary, Latinx, Tejan@s, Chicanos, Hispanics, and all fellow FÚTBOL LOVERS."
Last month, Los Verdes collaborated with Austin Coalition on bandanas that showed their support for combating racial injustice.
The Los Verdes x The Plastics SG summer scarf is available here on pre-order until Sept. 11.

After a truly impactful year on the aviation industry, Norwegian Air announced that due to COVID-19 and government advice discouraging travel, it would abandon its long haul flights to focus on its European audience for the time being.
That means Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is losing two European routes: a nonstop route to London and Austin's sole nonstop route to Paris.
There's nothing Austinites look forward to more than South by Southwest, and this year, the annual event returns as a digital experience.
