McGorry took to Instagram to share the news and explain why he’s partnering with Playboy.
‘Hey family! I’m proud to partner with Playboy to show the world PRIDE IS GOOD,’ he wrote. ‘Perhaps you’re surprised at my partnership with Playboy. Best believe I did give it a lot of thought. And also got the collective feedback of my incredible community of Social Impact Advisors at We Inspire Justice before saying “yes”!’
‘I am so excited by the progressive direction of the magazine. And the mission that they are embracing as they feature incredible women like Roxane Gay and Lizzo!’
‘Playboy has made a commitment to transform and the proof is in the pages! They have been putting out some really awesome, progressive content. Including the entire June issue being devoted to gender, masculinity, and sexuality.’
‘Together, we’re supporting The Trevor Project’s work to outlaw conversion therapy everywhere in America. No matter who you love or how you identify, you should feel safe AND proud of who you are. As a cis-hetero man working to be an ally, it is my honor and duty to show up for my LGBTQ siblings any chance I get.’
