Old Navy offers a Gay Pride tee and we love them for it

Old Navy Gay Pride teesWe’ve always been proud to support all types of families at Cool Mom Picks–the ones with one mommy, the ones with two mommies, the ones with no mommies at all. So we’re thrilled to see that Old Navy is doing the same, by making a stand in favor of love and tolerance with their new line of Gay Pride T-shirts launching next week.

This is a pretty big corporate statement and we admire the guts. But we really like that 10% of Old Navy sales on the items will go to the It Gets Better Project, a truly amazing effort to encourage the world to speak up against hate and intolerance. To be clear, we’re talking the kind of hate and intolerance that leads to an inexcusable rate of teen suicide in the gay community. If you haven’t clicked over to the site yet to watch the videos, do it. And bring the Kleenex.

If you’re inclined to wear your support on your chest, you can grab one of the four cute Gay Pride t-shirt designs for men, women and babies at Old Navy starting Monday, each for less than $15.

Rainbows everywhere! Most of all, we hope, in more people’s lives. -Liz + Kristen

Editor’s Note: The t-shirts will not be available online, but rather in select Old Navy stores. Here’s a list of the stores carrying the gay pride tees.

    I think it’s great and important to love EVERYBODY, just in appropriate to use your kids to further your political agendas…

    Kudos to Old Navy, and thanks to Cool Mom Picks. I logged on to order a t-shirt for my 8 month old, but I don’t see the shirt anywhere on the site?

    The new line doesn’t launch until next week. So I don’t think you will be able to view the line until then.

    Which Monday will these be available? Are they only sold in stores or online also? I can’t find one little bit of info about these on the ON or Gap, Inc. websites…

    Old navy is currently only offering these shirts in 26 stores around the country. I think it is a great idea in theory, but they need to be made available to everyone, not just cities with larger gay populations.

    Yay Old Navy! In response to Jenn, having kids sizes doesn’t exactly further an “agenda.” My son has two moms and this is a great tshirt that we can wear as a family to an alternative family gathering or just on a Saturday. No politics, just our life, our reality and kudos to a major store for creating this line. Let’s not forget that a portion of the proceeds go to a charity. Super cool, kind of hip and cheap to boot.

    I have been looking for these shirts on their website but cannot find them. Anyone have a direct link or a keyword I can search with on their shopping site? Thanks!

    I can assure you supporting my family is NOT furthering a political agenda.

    Thanks so much for sharing! As you’ve noted here, Old Navy isn’t carrying them online. Also, only a handful of stores have them (mostly major cities). Google “old navy pride” if you want to read more about it.

    Please, dressing your kids in this is no different than the groups/religions that choose to dress their kids in “modesty dresses” or bathing suits.
    It’s not a political agenda, it’s peoples lives, and if you don’t like it you will simply NOT BUY IT.
    I think it’s great.
