How Ready Is America Really for Gay-Themed Advertising?

How Ready Is America Really for Gay-Themed Advertising? | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it
it's one thing to accept gay marriage and another to see it aggressively portrayed in ads on your iphone. how ready are americans for gay-themed ads?
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Times sure have changed since the days when gay people referred to themselves as "friends of Dorothy," signaling their icon Judy Garland's role in "The Wizard of Oz." It was a code phrase, a necessary thing for gays, who had to live an underground existence, meeting in shady clubs in the nastier parts of town, braving police raids and gangs of gay bashers.

Today we have an ad by Amazon in which an attractive man and woman are reading, side by side, at the beach, the man struggling with the sun glare of his iPad.  She suggests he buy a Kindle Paperwhite, which he immediately orders.  He suggests they celebrate.  "My husband's bringing me a drink right now," she says.  "So is mine," he responds with a smile.
