A Croatian bank has upset bigots for its inclusion of a gay couple and a transgender woman in its commercial.
Erste Bank’s campaign “Croatia needs people who believe in themselves” centered diversity, Total Croatia News reports, and brought the ire of CitizenGo.
CitizenGo, whose board of trustees includes National Organization for Marriage (NOM) president Brian Brown, has released a petition against the ad, titled “Croatia needs people who believe in themselves, in marriage, in the family.”
CitizenGo made headlines for its transphobic bus that someone vandalized during a stop in New York City.
