“Unconventional” Ways To Welcome GOP?


Minnesota based non-profit The UnConvention recently began circulating a series of ads urging gay residents to be “unconventional” while welcoming Republicans, who are currently celebrating their national convention in St. Paul.

Above you’ll see a commercial depicting a gay and lesbian couple who switch it up as two suits walk their direction. The tagline reads: “The Republicans are coming. Make an effort.” While surely this is a light-hearted jab at the GOP’s exclusionary politics, the “closet yourself” subtext rubs us the wrong way.
