Old Navy shows Pride to a T

Values, CompanyOlivia Neagle, Gap Inc. bloggerComment

Inspired by the inclusivity of the Pride movement, Old Navy’s newest line of Pride tees are designed to be worn by anyone — regardless of age or gender.

It wasn't too long ago that the LGBT community existed in the shadows of underground social clubs and in the fringes of society.

Now, fewer than 50 years after the Stonewall riots, which ignited the modern LGBT equality movement, companies such as Gap, Old Navy, Tiffany & Co., Apple, and many others are supporting the very same community — and its allies — through their products.

Old Navy even put it on a T-shirt.

Inspired by the inclusivity of the Pride movement, Old Navy's newest line of Pride tees are designed using a clean, modern aesthetic that can be worn by anyone — regardless of age or gender. Created with the whole family in mind, Old Navy is offering their tees in three different designs, with sizes ranging from baby to adult, inviting anyone and everyone to join in their show of support for equality.

“T-shirts are a graphic vehicle for people to express themselves," says Morgan Thomas, who, along with Chris Jordan, helped oversee the shirts' design by Dustin Johnson.

Morgan explains that graphic T-shirts are a bold proclamation of who you are — as well as what you believe. Out of the immense respect Old Navy has for families of all kinds, they are excited to welcome fellow advocates to join the brand as it proudly proclaims — and as the tees read — Love is Love.

The shirts are hitting stores across the country just as citywide pride festivals, such as marches in San Francisco and New York, start gearing up for this weekend. Leading by example, Gap Inc. employees, friends and family, clad in these very T-shirts, will be marching in the New York City and San Francisco Pride Parades on Sunday to show support. Whether we're marching side by side, condemning discrimination in Indiana or standing alongside GLAAD's #GotYourBack campaign, we want our customers across the globe to know that you can be yourself with us.

The tees are also available on Old Navy's website, so customers can shop online from any location and wear their Pride.
