Watch now! Australian same-sex marriage campaign: “You’re having a lesbian!”

Australian gay rights groups are doubling down in their efforts to make marriage equality a reality. Today, Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays announced a new ad campaign that will no doubt generate buzz Down Under (and all over the internet). The commercial shows a straight couple getting an ultrasound in a gynecologist’s office, and captures their reaction when the doctor tells them they’re having a lesbian. PFLAG is also employing billboards to spread their “born this way” message. Each will picture a pregnant woman smiling, with the words, “Congratulations, you’re having a lesbian!” Here’s the commercial:

Campaign creator Steve Minon told news.com.au: “We’re trying to point out to any family that marriage equality can be your number one priority, without your knowing about it. If you have a child who walks in and tells you they’re gay, you’d still love them just as much as you did before.” (Kind of reminds me of this Expedia commercial.)

What do you think of PFLAG’s new campaign?
