After Yann Horowitz kissed his boyfriend in celebration of winning the Vans Park Series African Continental Championships in 2018, Yann’s fearless yet fabulous style became the talk of skateboarding. Yann realized his skating and sexual identity were becoming intertwined, and he had to ask himself, “Do I really want to be the ‘gay skateboarder’?” In the past five years, questions of sexuality and identity in our culture have come into the spotlight, and individuals like Yann have faced the complicated balancing act of being both an inspiration, and still holding on to who they are. In this short Coming Out Day documentary Skateism and Vans followed Yann back to his roots in South Africa, to find out more about where he came from and where he’s headed.

Soccer Mommy: Vans Sidestripe Sessions | VANS | Vans

Vans – This week’s session features music by Nashville native, Soccer Mommy. Soccer Mommy performed two songs, “Circle The Drain” and “Lucy” accompanied by art created by Jordan Moss. Soccer Mommy, aka Sophia Allison, launched her musical journey at a young age. That early spark led her to later attend the specialty school, Nashville School of the Arts, honing her guitar and songwriting skills. In 2015 she began to upload home studio recordings to Bandcamp and soon signed to Fat Possum. Allison’s indie rock sound, emotionally candid lyrics, and “sad-girl” persona resonated with fans. Clean, Allison’s 2018 debut studio album, made critics and fans swoon. The album made numerous end of year lists with The New York Times pop critics’ citing it on their best-albums lists in 2018. Earlier this year, Allison released her follow-up sophomore album, Color Theory. This latest effort allowed her to evolve her songwriting approach and process. Leading up to the album release, she told The New York Times, “On the last record, I didn’t have any experience in a studio, so I didn’t know how to bring in any ideas. This time, I had basically learned how it works. I had so many thoughts on how to make my vision of the song itself match the recording.” Listen to Soccer Mommy on the Vans Spotify Sidestripe Sessions Playlist: https://bit.ly/VansSpotifySidestripe Art from this episode comes from Jordan Moss. Jordan is a Brooklyn based illustrator and graphic designer with a background that ranges from fine art to advertising, she loves getting the chance to take on a variety of projects, all shapes and mediums. Whether it’s taking on hand painted murals in her city or digital stage graphics at Coachella, she’s excited to create in all spaces.
