    Chevrolet Features Gay Families

    The world of advertising is finally catching up with its LGBT audience.

    During the Opening Ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics, Chevrolet — one of the world's largest car brands — aired two new advertisements with diverse casts that include gay families. The spots blend news clips, social media and real-life events to show that even though the world is changing, the things that matter most remain the same.

    "Chevrolet has nailed it with ads that truly reflect the fabric of our nation, which today includes gay and lesbian families," said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

    Methodists in Crisis Over Gay Marriage

    The dispute among United Methodists over recognition of same-sex couples has lapsed into a doctrinal donnybrook, pitting clergy who are presiding at gay weddings in defiance of church law against proponents of traditional marriage who are trying to stop them.

    The intensity of the conflict was laid bare over the last several months, when the church tried, convicted and defrocked Frank Schaefer, a Pennsylvania pastor who presided at the wedding of his son to another man. Schaefer has since been traveling the country giving talks and sermons on gay acceptance.
