Wowza. It's starting to look like every company is advertising directly to the gay community these days: J.Crew hit the trend early with an adorable boy duo last year, last week we caught wind of a boy-on-boy Ray-Ban ad, and just yesterday mentioned a JC Penney catalog that spotlights lesbian partners and their family--not to mention Mr. Kenneth Cole who has always shown love to the gays with his campaigns.
