Quick flash of inclusion in new Google Nexus 5 ad

Two men are holding hands and walking down the aisle together around the :09 mark. Would’ve been nice to also see a lesbian couple in the ad, but it was nice to be included. We also know from previous ads, that Google is on board with inclusion.

Crybaby Boehner ad aired on football Sunday!

I didn’t see this ad until just today, but apparently the ad (which aptly compares John Boehner to a baby throwing a temper tantrum) aired on Sunday during the Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots NFL game.

After the baby cries, the narrator says “Speaker John Boehner didn’t get his way on shutting down health care reform. So, he’s shut down the government and hurt the economy.”

The brilliant ad aired in Speaker Beohner’s district in Cincinnati. Love it!

Allstate insurance company – “Being visible should never leave you feeling vulnerable.”

I come to you with this fantastic ad from Allstate via Gay Marriage USA‘s Facebook. The caption below reads “Allstate Insurance recently did a small ad campaign featuring gay couples that was presented in Chicago, San Francisco, and L.A. Kudos to them! This is me (Brad) and TJ (right). We should share and give them kudos!”

It’s great to see a company taking a stand for equality. In case you were wondering, Allstate also has an 85 rating on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index. So hey, if you’re looking for some insurance, you might want to check out Allstate!

Another inclusive ad from big business!

We’re seeing more LGBT-inclusive commercials, and I’m loving it. Last month’s highlight was the kindle ad, now check out the Microsoft Outlook commercial below: 

Even Quebec launched an anti-homophobia campaign showing those in the LGBT community in perfectly natural situations. See a running theme? To be gay or lesbian is natural!

Video: Quebec launches new anti-homophobia campaign


quebec.femme
The Quebec government has just launched a new five-year, $7.1 million, campaign that fights homophobia. There are radio ads, tv spots, and an interactive website that aims makes the user take a look at just how open-minded they are.

The ad’s are nice, they depict a gay guy/girl in an everyday situation, then at then end they kiss their significant other. It’s not raunchy, but it’s not a quick peck either.
