Early last week, adgrunt blondino posted about Ford Motor Company pulling ads for its Land Rover and Jaguar lines from gay and lesbian publications after the American Family Association threatened with a boycott. Ford claimed it had nothing to do with the influence of the group but was due to budgets. Now, Ford is going to be running corporate ads featuring their full lineup in gay pubs.
"It is my hope that this will remove any ambiguity about Ford's desire to advertise to all important audiences and put this particular issue to rest," wrote Joe Laymon, Ford's group vice president for corporate human resources.
They will not be forcing their luxury brands to resume their specific ads.
