JCrew at Center of Gay Politics Again With Gay Couple ‘Happy Together’ in May Catalog – ABC News

Another reason for me to love J Crew….

I already have a closet full of their clothes…

This just makes me want to buy more to show my support!

Or at least use that as an excuse…

In any event, Thanks, J Crew!

J. Crew surprised consumers again with a May 2011 catalog that features its employees as models, including a gay designer with his boyfriend, who are described as “Happy Together.”

The preppie clothing giant was quiet on its presentation of the same-sex couple — “Our designer Somsack and his boyfriend, Micah” — but gay advocates applaud what they say is a strong message.

“Nothing is unintentional in this kind of marketing,” said Cathy Renna of Renna Communications, which serves the LGBT community. “Bravo to J. Crew.”

“It’s a giant step forward,” she said. “As an activist, it’s great to see a diversity of images and to see gay families represented in more regular media.”
