It looks like Representative Stacey Campfield's "Don't Say Gay" bill has rubbed off on Old Navy. The retail giant releases rainbow-lettered "Love Proudly" and rainbow flag shirts in 26 stores, but the shirts won't be sold in Tennessee.

They're also not available online, so Tennessee equality advocates would have to drive to Atlanta, Chicago, or Dallas to purchase one at an Old Navy store. An online petition was launched to encourage the company to sell the gay pride shirts in stores in all 50 states.
