Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, is a friend of equality. Besides signing on to a court brief supporting same-sex marriages ahead of the upcoming Supreme Court hearing on the Defense of Marriage Act, Amazon was at the forefront of last year's equality push in Washington state (where the company is based) and its founder has donated a ton of money to help the movement.
Amazon also has a Corporate Equality Index score of 90 issued by the Human Rights Campaign in its annual report of LGBT-friendly businesses.
So it's no surprise that Amazon has jumped on the gay bandwagon in terms of advertising. A recent commercial promoting the company's Paperwrite e-reader released last month features a gay-friendly twist.

Scale & proportion
Says Martinez: “Scale and proportion are big this fall. (Pardon the pun!) Achieve this through an oversized sweater or a large chunky scarf.”
All things leather are in: coats, vests, skirts, pants and accents of all kinds. (No word on harnesses, though!)
Fur or Faux
Fur, especially used as trim, will take you into winter. Wear faux fur to avoid your militant PETA neighbors!
Think burgundy, wine, orange, blue and deep emerald.
“If you’re feeling adventurous and fashion forward,” Martinez says, “try a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana brocade trimmed cape. If that’s way too fashion fast lane for you, Zenga designed very handsome, very tailored ones.”
