I’ve been wearing a whole lot of Old Navy for over a decade, but I’ve never been specifically proud of the retailer, until now. Starting Monday they are taking a stand for gay marriage with a series of four limited-edition rainbow tees, with 10% of their profits will go to the It Gets Better project. This is a pretty ballsy stand for a mega-retailer to take; thus far it’s only been the small, high-end designers like Marc Jacobs that have done tees like this (and American Apparel, who has never made an effort to appeal to middle America).
There’s going to be a lot of inequality supporters squawking about family values and the “sanctity of marriage” I’M SURE, but they can blow it out their ear, amiright? Let’s go support Old Navy for taking a stand against hate.
The shirt above is my favorite, and the one I plan on getting my hands on. The other designs are kind of “meh” in my opinion (I’m allergic to white tee shirts and crew necks), but here they are.
Are you planning on wearing one?
