Apple’s New Ad Features LGBTQ Couple

Apple’s new commercial for the iPhone 7 features an “affectionate gay couple enjoying their new tech on the NYC subway.”

Apple came under scrutiny for leaving out a LGBTQ couple from its Mother’s Day ad ‘Shot on iPhone’ in international markets. The ad ‘Shot on iPhone’ is, “A tribute to all mothers through the eyes of iPhone users worldwide,” and features clips of mothers and their children from around the world. The US version of the ad featured a lesbian couple. However, that couple was cut in the French, German, Italian, Turkish and Japanese versions.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is a member of the LGBTQ community and has been both applauded and criticized for his social activism around LGBT issues.

Everything’s Coming Up Rainbows: Love Now Legal Nationwide

Friday, June 26th, 2015: a historical mile marker for the United States. Courthouses across the U.S. are now open for business, serving straight AND same-sex marriages. Here are some of our favorite (and least favorite) reactions, stories and tweets:


God @TheTweetOfGod: “If the Founding Fathers were alive today they’d all start marrying each other.”

Two: reports how Fox News reacts – We can only watch and wince, almost feeling bad for them.


Yes, finally. A passionate, conservative voice of reason. Thank you, CNN contributor S.E. Cupp.


The GOP Candidates’ Responses
We don’t get it either. The best part about what they think? It doesn’t matter anymore!
P.S. Our “favorite” (as in “least favorite”) here: it’s a draw between Mike Huckabee and Rich Santorum.


The Rainbow-Lit Whitehouse
What a beautiful beacon of hope! The light after the storm and exactly what a rainbow is all about.


Tim Cook’s tweet hits the nail on the head — love, as with marriage, is all about perseverance.
“Today marks a victory for equality, perseverance and love.” — Tim Cook


Ellen DeGeneres. Let’s face it: anything she says is amazing and we love her.
“Love won. #MarriageEquality” — Ellen DeGeneres


Dan Savage, you count twice for these tear-jerker Tweets.
“1/2. Telling my parents I was gay in 1980 didn’t just mean telling them that I was sexually and romantically attracted to other boys.” — Dan Savage


“2/2. I was also telling them that I would never have children and that I would never be married. That was then. This is now.” — Dan Savage


Here’s to Vinicius Vacanti for hitting two birds (or should we say four old dinosaurs?) with one stone:
