Kohl’s Holiday Ad Celebrates Family With Gay Couple
Kohl’s released a new ad “Celebrate Togetherness” just before the holiday season, and it features a gay couple apparently making a big announcement at Thanksgiving dinner.
It was posted on their official YouTube page with a description that reads: “The best of the holidays? Being together with family and friends of course!”
According to executive vice president of marketing Will Setliff, Kohl’s new #AllTogetherNow campaign “focuses on how Kohl’s is bringing modern families together in unexpected ways.”
The ad shows a diverse family preparing a holiday meal together in a bustling kitchen. As they sit down to dinner, a handsome gay couple shares a toast that, from the looks of it, might be celebrating an engagement.
Kohl’s will also put a “storytelling pop-up truck” in Times Square November 20 and 21. The company says that the truck will allow families or individuals to “share their family traditions via social media.”

IKEA Germany Released a Christmas Ad Starring Gay Couple Kissing
IKEA Germany features a kiss between two men in their latest Christmas advert.
A gay male couple who come to Christmas dinner sneak a quick peck on the cheek. Although, the kiss is pretty subtle and can easily be missed if not watching carefully. But there is nothing that our eye can’t catch when it comes to this subject.
Watch the video carefully to notice it:
This is not the first time IKEA has used gay couples in their advertising. It first introduced same-sex couples over twenty years ago, back in 1994. However, the 1994 advert was released in the U.S., and it was not tolerated, and resulted in some stores receiving bomb threats.
