In the meantime, though, I came across this little bit of news that made me rather happy:
Apparently, for the first time ever, Tiffany & Co. (yes the Tiffany & Co. - the one with the little blue boxes; the one Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly had breakfast at) has chosen to use a same-sex couple in one of their ad campaigns.
According to all of the news about the image, it is a real-life couple (not a pair of un-connected models) sitting on their own front steps outside their apartment. (The stories also imply that it's their own clothing and their own stying, but I'm not buying the idea that they didn't have a stylist - after all, this is a major ad campaign.)
|The tagline on the right says: |
"Will you promise to never stop completing my
sentences or singing off-key, which I'm afraid you
do often? And will you let today be the first
sentence of one long story that never, ever ends?
Most likely there will come a time - hopefully relatively soon - when wedding ads feature same-sex couples don't make the news. But, until that time, I'm more than happy to applaud the companies that are standing out in front of the crowd, unafraid to show their support for everyone's right to their own Tiffany-blue daydreaming.
