Top 10 Most Popular Wedding Registry Items at Target 1. Pyrex 18-Piece Storage Set ($29.74) ...
In an interview with Billboard magazine, Lady Gaga says an exclusive edition release of "Born This Way" with Target was made only with the promise the retailer would donate to and align itself with pro-LGBT causes.
Target made a $150,000 donation to a political action committee that supported GOP candidate Tom Emmer, who opposes gay marriage, when he ran for governor of Minnesota last year. Emmer lost.
But Lady Gaga's decision to release the exclusive edition of "Born This Way" — who some have deemed the next "gay anthem" —raised the eyebrows of many of her more social justice activist Little Monsters.
In the aftermath of Target donating to a political action committee funding an anti-gay gubernatorial candidate in Minnesota, local activists plan to protest at the Edgewood Shopping Center Target and Best Buy on Saturday, Sept. 4, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Georgia Equality issued a press release today citing the reasons for a protest, despite an apology from Target, Corp.
The gays are mad at Target because the corporation made a hefty campaign contribution to a man who is obviously anti-gay and who is running for governor of Minnesota.
Yes, this sucks. Anyone who works against us is an ass. So, see you later, “Dr.” Laura. I wouldn’t get a pap smear from her either, Kathy.
And this guy running for governor, whatever his name is, obviously is wrong and Target, as inclusive as it is with its non-discrimination statements and willingness to hire and offer benefits to LGBT people — well, it would have been better if they had not given $150,000 to someone who doesn’t believe their own employees deserve equal rights.
