New McDonald’s advert about coming out


New commercial in Taiwan shows a touching story about a gay son coming out to his father. Over a ‘McCafe’, the son writes ‘I like boys’ on the side of his paper cup, and turns it towards his father, who initially reacts badly, thumping his fist and walking off. He then returns, gathers himself, and takes the boy’s cup and adds to it, so it reads ‘I accept that you like boys’ and turns it back towards him. The pair exchange smiles before the tagline “Let there be more warmth in conversations” appears on screen. The religious activists are already planning a boycott. The commercial already has many positive views on YouTube. Meanwhile Taiwan recently elected its first female president, who also supports the introduction of same-sex marriage in the country, which is regarded as one of the most progressive in Asia one the issue of LGBT rights.
