Liquor Control Board of Ontario salutes drunken LGBTs.

(click ad, via) Wow, pretty racy copy from a conservative government agency. But why not? Shitfaced is shitfaced. Sales tax is sales tax. Gay Pride Week in Toronto—like everywhere—begins June 25th. So the LCBO, via ad agency GLP, placed this ad in Toronto's annual pride guide. The guppies reference, and the closing spritzer line are pretty stupid. But otherwise, especially when you remember that this is a government ad, not terrible. Previously in: gay ads.

A government agency yes, but the Ontario government is hardly conservative on gay issues.

Compared to American state governments, yes.

so why is this ad positive about all identities except bisexuals? we always get this "you can't decide" crap. we can so decide - we've decided we want both! (and everything in between.)
