Watch: Mothers’ Day Ad from Doritos Mexico Features Kids with Two Moms

Watch: Mothers' Day Ad from Doritos Mexico Features Kids with

Doritos Mexico has launched a surprisingly touching ad for Mothers’ Day that features real kids from two-mom families reading letters of thanks to their mothers.

In the video, created by Slap Global, six youth read from a stage to their parents, thanking them for all that they have done to help raise and support them. They speak of universals like getting dinner on the table as well as experiences specific to those with same-sex parents. We also see the real-time reactions in the mothers’ eyes as they hear their children’s words. The video has been edited to string the voices together: One girl says, “And though only one of you had me in your belly,” and the scene cuts to a boy saying, “both of you did everything to have me.” It’s a neat trick to emphasize some of the universals of their experiences while also allowing for their individual voices.

Yes, it’s getting towards the time of year when lots of companies slap rainbows on their products—but this ad is part of Doritos Mexico’s #PrideAllYear campaign, which is intended to elevate LGBTQ stories all year long. The company has also released LGBTQ-themed ads before this year (as well as rainbow-colored Doritos to support the It Gets Better Project). Additionally, PepsiCo, Doritos’ corporate parent, is an HRC National Corporate Partner, meaning they’re putting money back into LGBTQ causes. They also get a perfect 100 on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index for inclusive policies and practices.

As with last year’s ad about a young gay man bringing his boyfriend home for the holidays for the first time, this new one is designed to hit viewers in the feels—and it works. Whether it makes you run off to buy a bag of cheesy chips is another question—but if it gets these stories in front of folks who might not otherwise see them and makes someone more supportive of all types of families, then I’ll consider it a force for good.

Gay Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Gay Area * Nightlife – wolfyy

gay Puerto Vallarta

gay Puerto Vallarta

Mexico’s classic gay travel destination, Puerto Vallarta lures the LGBT community with ritzy beach clubs, budget-friendly hotels and animated gay nightlife. This small city is a frequent choice for Americans and Canadians, especially in winter.

Before visiting Puerto Vallarta, I never fully understood what specifically makes this destination so attractive to gay men. Gay friends and acquaintances of mine always raved about Puerto Vallarta. I quickly found out why.

Puerto Vallarta is so popular because the city is quite conducive to groups of gay travelers. The gay scene here is physically compact. This makes things super easy for friends to coordinate plans.

The Puerto Vallarta Gay Area

The Puerto Vallarta gay area starts in Zona Romántica and continues southward to the border of the Amapas neighborhood. Most of the gay-friendly establishments and nightlife is within the five or so city blocks from the waterfront.

I highly recommend staying in the Puerto Vallarta gay area. It’s convenient and you’ll never run out of things to do. Furthermore, meeting up with friends should easier here since there are so many hotel and resort options in close proximity. You’ll have tons of options for restaurants, shopping and beach clubs, all within a 5-minute walk.

There’s much more to know about gay PV, so continue to wolfyy’s Puerto Vallarta gay guide to find the best hotels, resorts, experiences, and gay nightlife venues. Plus, local travel tips!
