Etsy has released a new holiday commercial featuring a Black gay couple being accepted by family members.
The ad, part of the e-commerce site’s “Gift Like You Mean It” campaign, features couple Brandon and David as they head home at Christmas to meet one of the men’s relatives, the Advocate reports.
Standing nervously on the doorstep, one tells the other, “Don’t worry, they’re going to love you.”
Inside, it’s a traditional holiday scene, as the men are welcomed in and sat at the table with the other members of the family.
An elder family member later approaches the couple while presents are being handed out, saying, “We didn’t forget about you. Welcome to the family.”
He then presents the couple with a customized Christmas tree ornament, featuring their names and likenesses — which is subsequently placed alongside similar ornaments of other family members.
