Tom-Daley

A mobile phone advert featuring diver Tom Daley has been banned for a strange reason. The Advertising Standards Authority acted to remove the ad from phone brand HTC, which starred the diver. The advert promoted the phone’s selfie-taking ability, showing Daley snapping photos after he jumps from a diving board, just before hitting the water. The diver was then again pictured with the phone after leaving the water. There’s just one problem… the phone isn’t waterproof enough to be taken the pool. The HTC...
Mastercard

A new advert has given us all a reason to smile with this charming story about a dad, a daughter and some nail polish. Mastercard has released a heartwarming new advert that challenges gender stereotypes in a delightful way. The advert tells the story of a father and daughter bonding over nail polish on “Dad’s nail polish day.” It opens with the pair realising that they have no nail polish to hand. To fix the situation, the father and daughter start going through...

You’ve probably seen the ridiculous Australian anti-same-sex marriage advert by now. You know the one – a mother tells you that her child’s school told him he could wear a dress, and you think: “Oh, that seems reasonable.” Then another throws her hands up in the air about her precious darling having to role play being in a same-sex couple, as if it’s a bad thing to think deeply about different sexualities. And, as a new parody ad suggests, there may be...
dove-realmums

A new advert by Dove about parenting features a trans mother and her female partner. The campaign, called #RealMoms, encourages mothers to channel their unique personalities into how they raise their child. The company explained that it wants to show “diverse parenting styles” which “shatter stereotypes about motherhood, and prove that there are no rules about how to be a parent today”. One mother, a trans woman called Shea raising her child with her female partner, says: “We are both his biological...
A wedding cake

Campaigners for marriage equality in Australia have released a new advert calling for the government to introduce a free vote. The advert, which was produced by the Equality Campaign, features everyday Australians going about their day-to-day tasks. “We do our jobs, It’s about time politicians did theirs,” actors in the video say. Surgeons, fire fighters, doctors and nurses all feature in the short, but impactful, 30 second clip that asks the simple question: “Why can’t we get married?” LGBT activists in the country...
lgbt advert

The technology firm’s new Art Of Harmony campaign sees them celebrate real-life activists, including transgender reality star Jazz Jennings and seven-year-old Zea Bowling who stood up to a homophobic preacher. Others who feature in the advert include Mona Haydar, a Muslim-American activist who invites people to “ask a Muslim” over coffee and doughnuts, and nine-year-old Zianna Oliphant, who spoke on racial issues to the Charlotte City Council. Microsoft said in a statement: “This year has been challenging for many and much...
BBC-One-Christmas-Kiss

BBC One’s new Christmas advert is the latest to features a same-sex couple. The festive scenes promote equality and show off the diversity of modern-day Britain, with a range of couples and family set-ups including a male same-sex couple who share a kiss at a Christmas party. Viewers have since taken to social media to air their thoughts on the new advert, with many praising the inclusivity shown in the advert and expressing the importance of such representation for minorities. https://twitter.com/OnceUponASophie/status/805502231919423488?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/philford/status/805501658667110405?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/kennycport/status/806051428963876865?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/nickophile/status/805868277482291201?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/Saul_Britt/status/805939130429571077?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/robbieg_15/status/805502392032751616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw It’s not...
HB2U-and-Pat-McCrory

North Carolina’s unpopular governor received a special birthday wish this year. Today marks the 60th birthday of Pat McCrory, who infamously signed the state’s HB2, an anti-LGBT law which bans non-discrimination ordinances and stops trans people using bathrooms that match their gender identity. To celebrate the occasion, a progressive group of writers took out a full-page advert in the Raleigh News & Observer which features a rainbow layer cake and the headline “HB2 U, PAT”. The ad reads: “Governor McCrory, we send you our best...
