Pride Branding (UPDATE)

The rise of LGBT-friendly innovations, products & messages
Implications - In 2011, it was estimated by the UCLA School of Law's Williams Institute that approximately 9 million, or 3.8 percent, of Americans identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The figure continues to grow as more consumers begin to feel comfortable about openly displaying their sexual orientations, augmented further by the number of LGBT pride festivals taking place across North America each year. Now, more brands are also showing their support through special products and marketing messages, and while some companies have received backlash from anti-gay consumers, the overall message of equality and rights is more powerful than any angry and ignorant comments derived by the brand for the campaign.
