Target Corp. goes pro-gay with new online ad

The Minneapolis-based retail chain remains mum on the controversial marriage amendment in Minnesota, but a fairly new online ad for Target’s wedding registry sends a strong message, the Huffington Post writes. It shows two grooms embracing with the slogan, “Be Yourself, Together.”

Target stores also began selling greeting cards honoring gay couples. The cards feature phrases like  ”Mr. & Mr.” and “Two very special women, one very special love.”

General Mills, Thomson Reuters and St. Jude Medical are among high-profile Minnesota companies saying the constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage in Minnesota would hurt businesses in the state.
