Target Debuts Wedding Registry Ad Starring Gay Couple

Jessica Wakeman / July 29, 2012

Target is just one of several retailers that has realized gays and lesbians have money to spend and have decided to reflect that in their advertising. Under the tagline “Be Yourself, Together” with the words “That’s Love” under the red logo, Target’s new ad for its Wedding Gift Registry depicts a same-sex couple holding hands and touching noses as confetti falls around then. Very cute! But we also can’t forget that Target made a 2010 political donation to an anti-gay marriage candidate in Minnesota, prompting Lady Gaga to cancel an exclusive album deal with them. I hope this just one of many ways the company’s will make amends.  [Styleite, Huffington Post]
