“Publicly traded corporations may fear offending stockholders or customers, however. Gay rights activists protested loudly when Target Corp.donated $150,000 to a super PAC supporting a Minnesota gubernatorial candidate who strongly opposed gay marriage. The company apologized.”
“Two years after Target Corp. angered gay marriage supporters with a political donation that benefited a gay-marriage opponent seeking the governor’s office, the retailer is now upsetting same-sex marriage opponents by selling T-shirts to raise money for a group working to defeat a gay marriage ban in Minnesota…
Target’s move comes two years after it endured a backlash from gay rights supporters for giving $150,000 to a campaign group backing the conservative Republican candidate for Minnesota governor, Tom Emmer, who narrowly lost to Democrat Mark Dayton in a race that went to an automatic recount. The donation set off protests and calls for a boycott from a constituency that had seen Target as an ally.”
“The ad, which features multiple images, prominently displays a picture of a gay couple that says “Be yourself together.” LOVE THIS. Target is widely known as an LGBT friendly company (unlike a certain chicken fast food joint that sells waffle fries *cough cough*) but this is the first time that we’ve seen a guy on guy couple featured in one of their registry ads.
If more companies would take notes from Target and JCPenney, we’d be okay.”
