Have a Happy and Gay Father's Day

JC Penny supports equality
We all know that Father’s Day is another one of those “Hallmark holidays." It is an opportunity to get the marketing and sales machine going. Nevertheless, here are a few commercial greetings to gay fathers everywhere.

The JC Penny ad to the right has stirred up the anti-gay groups demanding boycotts of the store. The ad features a real same-sex couple -- Cooper Smith and Todd Koch -- and their kids. The live near Dallas, TX. Read more about them here.

Below are a few old ads that celebrate Dads and their kids.

Love the vintage Father's Day ads. And of course, the JC Penney ad is nice to see as well. Thank you for collecting all of these ads!
