PHOTOS: New Las Vegas Ads Depict Gay Utopia With The Occasional Straight Couple


As the old adage goes, whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and if the city’s new tourism ads are to be believed, there’s a lot of same-sex sinning happening in Sin City. Along with some mild straight sight-seeing.


The tagline for the tongue-in-cheek ads read, “Everyone’s welcome. Even straight people.” To wit, each gay scenario features a hapless, and woefully attired, hetero couple enjoying the man and/or lady candy.


As to be expected — since it’s something that exists on the internet — the ads have already generated a bit of controversy, for either stereotyping the gays or “mocking” the straights.


But, hey, it’s Vegas. What do you expect, subtlety?

      Hilarious…considering 3 months ago my bf and I were called fags repeatedly for holding hands on the strip. Ohh well…doubt ads will curtail small town minds who often flock to Las Vegas.

      Dumb phuckers can’t even produce good copy with a ridiculous ad budget apparently.
      Let’s see here let’s mock all the straits that built Vegas into what it while we depict
      stereotyped lecherous gays. Good thinking Homer; alienate two groups in one easy swoop.
      That’ll bring the crowds in dumass.

      @ho: Ware da hell did U lern to spel? (I typed it that way so you’d understand it.) Phuckers obviously spelled wrong, but also strai(GH)ts… “into what it *(IS)* while… dum(B)ass. Good thing you didn’t write the copy!

      Vegas sucks anyway, what a cheesy place. Let the straights have it.

      Clever ad campaign, until you get there and you realize that everyone there are drunk obnoxious redneck str8t people… . No.2 ho would be a perfect example of your typical str8t in Vegas.
