It is more than well-documented at this point how much of a sports power couple Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe are. Not only are both (still) great at their respective sports, but they are also unapologetic Black Lives Matter allies and staunch supporters of the struggle for social justice.

Their story has now been excellently featured by GQ Magazine as part of its March “Modern Lovers” issue. GQ has released three covers – one with Bird and Rapinoe, one with Ciara and Russell Wilson and a third with Naomi Osaka and Cordae.

As expected, plenty of topics get mentioned in the feature for GQ – including how the proposal happened, social justice, organizing in the bubble, how they first met, fashion and the USWNT’s fight for equal pay.

It also mentions what life has in store for them in their post-athletics life – including how Bird could expand her investment portfolio after she retires.
