New York State ad campaign tries to steal business away from states with anti-LGBT laws

New York State ad campaign tries to steal business away from states with anti-LGBT laws | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
New York State is capitalizing on the negative publicity that three states have garnered for their anti-LGBT stances. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has launched an “Open Doors Campaign” that will air TV advertisements in Texas, Mississippi, and North Carolina touting New York as a preferable place to relocate.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

The ads feature multiple images of same-sex couples and reference Ellis Island, the Underground Railroad, the fight for women’s suffrage, and the Stonewall Rebellion. New York is depicted as a place that “welcomes those unwelcome in other places.”
