Levi Strauss Donates $25,000 To Maintain CA Gay Nups


Levi’s got even more gay this week!

Not only has the San Francisco-based jeans company put out a gay commercial (seen above), and designed a pair of same-sex loving pants, but now they’ve joined a number of other companies in fighting against California’s Proposition 8:

Levi Strauss has pledged $25,000 to Equality for All, the coalition leading the No on 8 campaign, says company spokesman E.J. Bernacki. Robert Haas, the company’s chairman emeritus, and his wife have given $100,000, Bernacki said.

Two labor unions, the California Council of Service Employees and the California Teachers Association, each have given $250,000. Telecommunications company AT&T has given $25,000.

Reach out and touch someone, baby!
