Jeff Grosso’s final Loveletter to LGBTQ+ skateboarding

Jeff Grosso’s final Loveletter to LGBTQ+ skateboarding just went live and stands in testament to the depth of loveliness that our much-missed sage represents. We can only hope that the big pink one is surveying the scene from above and is smiling that unmistakable grin as the Internet reacts to his Loveletter to LGBTQ+ skateboarders the world over. Absolute magic this one.

I’m not going to waste your time by recounting who’s in it, what gets discussed or why it’s an extremely timely embrace of our brother and sisters in arms because, unless you’re stupid, you’ll already appreciate the significance of this being Grosso’s final Loveletter.
We’ve come a long way since the days of women featuring in skate brand adverts purely as eye-candy wearing skate clothing not designed for them, and even more so in the slow but exponentially increasing open acceptance of the huge LGBTQ+ community but there’s still a way to go and this Grosso/Vans release is going to do a lot to expedite that change.

Like I already said, I’m not going to patronise you, you know that this is the perfect send off to one of skateboarding’s most beloved voices. If you ever needed proof of the fact that Jeff Grosso loved the act of skateboarding with all his heart and soul, then this 36 minute video provides it.
We love you Jeff Grosso.

If this has put you in the mood for more of the great man, (and why wouldn’t it?) – head over to our very own Loveletter to Jeff Grosso here.

With the above said, we can also strongly recommend checking out the full-length ‘Euro There’ video from LGBTQ+ skate crew/brand There Skateboards (featuring a bunch of the people interviewed in Grosso’s final Loveletter to skateboarding). We’ve even made it easy for you by embedding it below.
It’s 2020 and there are millions of skateboarders in the world. Let’s try to make our shared universe that little bit more pleasant by trying to be nice to each other, it’s really not that difficult.
