Target offers same-sex marriage greeting cards

The Minneapolis-based discount giant has not taken a stance on the controversial amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota, but Target stores are now selling greeting cards honoring gay couples. The cards feature phrases like  “Mr. & Mr.” and “Two very special women, one very special love.”

A company spokeswoman told the Star Tribune, “Target is focused on diversity and inclusivity.”

In May, Target also began selling T-shirts on its website to support gay pride.

Last week, the manager of R&B artist Frank Ocean accused the Minnesota retailer of not carrying the singer’s latest album, “Channel Orange,” in stores because he’s gay. Target strongly denied the allegation.
