Video: D&G embraces L&Gs

by Jeremy Hooper

Dolce & Gabbana have a reputation for gay-inclusive print ads. But this pair of commercials that have recently begun airing in the states are an even more progressive step:

Begging the obvious question: Where the hell is the religious right going to get their high end haute couture now?! Because if there was one place they thought their traditional values held a lock, it's the world of designer fashion. What next -- are they going to have to suffer as our "agenda" is also foisted into musical theater?!

But while we are jesting in saying the above, you just watch. As soon as our opposition becomes privy to these ads, they will be claiming "attacks on values" faster than you can "Gays are humans, they exist, and they buy fashion -- so pipe down, pious peeps!"

Your thoughts

Isn't D&G a gay couple anyway? I know one of them is vocally against gay marriage.

Scott: Not sure about marriage. Gabbana, however, has offensively spoken out against gays becoming parents:

You are correct G-A-Y, my bad! Was thinking of another openly gay celeb who is anti-gay marriage.
