“Took my gay and Muslim friend to Nordstrom and then to the White House to pay our respects,” Handler wrote on Facebook. She posted another pic to Instagram with the caption, “A Jew and a Gay went to pick a Muslim up from the airport, headed straight to Nordstrom, and then headed over to @whitehouse to give our thanks!”
Nordstrom the American upscale fashion retailer has created a holiday commercial that feature’s two gay men kissing
The commercial titled The Homecoming shows an impeccably dressed man arriving home carrying his luggage and a Nordstrom bag. He picks up a dog happy for his arrival, then he shares a kiss and hug with another man.
The rabidly right-wing website American Thinker criticized Hulu for running the ad during programs that don’t include a “large proportion of Haight-Ashbury and Greenwich Village types” viewers. And admonished Hulu for running the ad during reruns of The Rifleman and Dennis the Menace.
“[These shows] are generally watched by those who long for more innocent programming” and children, the site said.
Nordstrom has a 100% rating in the Human Rights Campaign Buyers Guide.
In a show of support Thursday, international clothing franchise Nordstrom leaders advised over 56,000 employees in an email that the company now supports marriage equality and the measure to have same sex marriages legalized in Washington State:
“It is our belief that our gay and lesbian employees are entitled to the same rights and protections marriage provides under the law as our other employees. We also believe supporting freedom to marry will help us create a more attractive and inclusive workplace for our current and prospective employees.”
The company joins Microsoft, Nike, Starbucks and Amazon.com (who have already given 2.5 million to ensure that the bill passes). Overall the bill may be the first bill in which marriage is legally voted into a state’s constitution.
